Homewood to replace emergency sirens

The village of Homewood will replace existing emergency warning sirens and install three new warning system sirens in the upcoming weeks. 

Due to difficulty obtaining repair parts for the 25-year-old sirens, village officials found it necessary to replace the equipment entirely. 

The current sirens have outdated technology and have to be manually started by the Homewood Police Department. The new sirens will be sounded electronically through the village’s emergency dispatch center as many other communities do. 

Residents should be aware the new sirens will no longer include . . .
