I haven’t really heard people discuss setups like these such, so I thought I would start a topic on it. Have you ever found two or more of the same siren together? It’s rare, but there are some examples. Here’s a pair of two Fedelcode Model 2s in Bridport, Vermont:

Know of more? Post away! I know of a couple more, but would like to see what others have found.

Morrill Nebraska has a Darley Model 2 and a Whelen 4 cell Omni next to each other at the football field, as well as an Erick Fire Siren and Thunderbolt 1003 together at the fire hall. Crawford has a Thunderbolt 1003 and a Sterling M-10 on the same pole. Henry recently had a Whelen 2903 installed next to their Sterling M-5 behind their fire shack as part of a county wide storm siren system. It could be debated the Sterling is still in use as a fire siren/local signal. Well, there's quite a few Nebraska villages with siren pairs for that matter.

Can you give street view links to the Mitchell sirens? I can’t seem to find them.

Wow! That’s cool, but also strange too. Why would you need two huge Whelens right next to each other?

I looked at the setup, looks cool! Do you know why they need two?

In Fowlerville, MI, there is a setup where there is a STH-10 next to a mystery Darley. The STH-10 does noon and 10 P.M. blasts, and is used with the county system. Then about 400-500 feet away, there is a 2001-SRN that is connected to the county system. So there is 3 sirens within 500 feet of each other. *note the Darley is dead. It doesn't go off for blasts or tests*

Ah, i remember that setup. It was one of the first posted in the mystery Sirens thread. It’s some 2v8/3v8 siren.
