Fire Station Roof Siren: The Fire Station roof siren is now in service with a new digital controller. This solves previous issues and expands its use for public alerting to major emergencies. The siren sounds to notify of fire and emergency calls and to alert the public of vehicles responding. The siren is also used to warn of the need to shelter in place or evacuate, letting citizens know that they need to refer to local sources of information such as the town website or television, radio, or other online sites for emergency instructions.

Signs are to be 12″ x 6″ with BLACK numbers on reflective WHITE background and a BORDER. Please contact the Town Office or go to www.white-sign.com and obtain a new reflective house number sign to install. Reviewed and accepted by the Castine Historic Preservation Committee (CHPC).
