Chatfield siren agreement with Olmsted County

Posted in Chatfield All

The Chatfield City Council at their April 9 meeting approved an agreement with Olmsted County for the operation and maintenance of the city’s warning sirens.

The purchase of the updated sirens was approved in February. The total cost including installation was about $48,000. Olmsted County had offered last summer to take over the activation and maintenance of the sirens. The sirens will be triggered from the storm center in Olmsted County to alert the public of hazardous weather conditions. Olmsted County will monitor weather with weather radar and visual spotters that are located strategically across the county.

The sirens are to be tested monthly. The regular signals at noon and six will continue.
