Firefighters To Replace Batesville Weather Siren

Fire crews in Batesville hope to soon replace a weather siren near Moll’s Corner on S.R. 229 that has been down.

Fire Chief Todd Schutte said the siren has been inoperative as they are currently in the process of having it replaced.

“We had it get hit by lightning and it fried all of the electrical components in the siren. So we are in the process of getting a new siren box or new siren head for that siren location. It will take a little time to get it back up and running,” Schutte said.

Schutte added that it is important to not rely strictly on a siren when severe weather strikes the area. With dangerous weather a threat this time of year, stay aware of potential severe weather, follow local media and develop a plan for you and your family.
