New Warning Sirens

Keeping the community safe is the highest priority for every city.  Clayton and surrounding communities continue to demonstrate the commitment to this essential service through a recent cooperative partnership in placing warning sirens throughout the Northmont community.

Clayton, Englewood, Trotwood and Clay Twp. worked together to provide warning siren coverage to most of our region’s residents. Nine-warning sirens have been placed strategically throughout our region to assist Clayton residents in the event of emergency weather conditions, with three of those sirens located directly within Clayton’s boundaries. Each jurisdiction either shared the cost of a siren or strategically located new sirens in areas to provide coverage to multiple jurisdictions, without overlapping.  Clayton and our regional partners were successful in this project with the assistance of grants awarded through the Department of Homeland Security.

Warning sirens are just one way the community can be alerted to weather or other emergencies.  Residents can place an app on their smart phone or sign up for the City of Clayton’s notification system to receive alerts for tornado’s and other emergency warnings.  Residents can also use a weather radio and tune into local channels for emergency instructions during such an event.  A combination of all the suggested methods continues to be the best way to ensure safety during inclement and dangerous weather.
