The Borough of Mifflinburg and the Mifflinburg Hose Company have been working together to add another feature to help with public safety in Mifflinburg. The siren (alarm) system for the Borough of Mifflinburg has been approved to allow for activation of a siren warning system that can be activated by the Emergency Management Coordinator or local first responders. The intent of this new system is to provide advanced notice, when possible, of a tornado warning for our immediate area. This system would be activated when the National Weather Service issue a tornado warning in our area, giving residents some advanced notice of imminent weather conditions.
The first test for this Alarm is scheduled for Saturday April 4, 2020 at noon. If there is inclement weather, this test will be postponed for one week until April 11, 2020 at the same time. (further information available in the Mayor’s notice)
Thank you for your patience as we test this system.
In the future the Mifflinburg Hose Company will continue to use the FIRE Siren.
The FIRE Siren will continue to operate as it has in the past with four (4) SHORT siren blasts which cycle up for several seconds and then cycle down for several seconds.
The TORNADO Siren will be a SUSTAINED THREE (3) minute siren.
