Many in Joplin ignored 1st Tornado warning sirens

In a news release today, a study came out that many folks in involved in the horrific tornado in Joplin, MO this year did not heed the tornado siren’s warning.  It is obvious that people will ignore a siren warning if there have been a number of false alarms.  However, Whelen Engineering High Powered Voice Tornado Warning sirens can advise people if it was a false alarm as well as advise if it is not a false alarm and provide further information as to the emergency.  Interesting article and unfortunately people perished because of assumptions.

The article also mentioned the county is looking into weather alert radios.  Weather radios in every house for every resident is an idea that creates many more questions and many more problems.  Who is repsonsible for the purchase?  Who is responsible for the maintenance (batteries, RF signal, outlet power, etc)?  Who is responsible for giving the weather radios to new residents?  What about when someone moves out of town?  Where does that radio go?

Please call or email us here to talk more thoroughly about the benefits of using Whelen High Powered Voice Tornado Warning sirens.


  1. This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed
    what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
