The city of Bowling Green recently completed an upgrade of its emergency warning system by installing a tornado siren in the 15th Street Park. Placement of this siren will supplement the three other sirens within the city, located at the police department, near the Super 8 Hotel, and at the Hi-Rise. Because of occasional difficulty hearing the other sirens on the west side of Bowling Green, the additional warning system will alleviate such concerns.
Bowling Green administrators wished to indicate to residents that the sirens are intended to be utilized as an outdoor warning system, and are not designed to be heard inside. Radio and television are the recommended communication sources for local weather conditions.
