Shocked I haven't posted on this thread yet, let alone discovered it until recently.
Anyways, as my signature says, my town specifically uses multiple T-128s and 2001s of varying age and a single newer T-135AC/DC in the outskirts with Davenport using a mix of 4004s and 4008s with a single inactive roof-mounted Thunderbolt downtown. As for the rest of Scott County, there's a system of T-128s and T-135AC/DCs for what I'd imagine is the QC Generating Station in Cordova, IL, 2 Vortex R4s and a presumably inactive P10 or P15 in Eldridge and more 2001s and T-128s of varying age sprinkled all around. The only thing outside of the aforementioned sirens (that I'm aware of) is a 3T22 in McCausland which, assuming it's still up since there's a 2001-130 next to it, is either sitting inactive or being used only as a fire siren and maybe a noon whistle.

My City itself does not have any sirens (Unless if you count the Pavions at Camp Pendleton) But, The nearest siren to me is this Fedelcode model 7 used as a fire siren.

The sirens at Pendleton are actually SiRcoms, if I recall correctly.

My town used to have a Whelen Vortex at the city hall, but it's been removed some time after 2014.

And yes, I just implied I've been living in this town for over 7 years

Say, I recognize that. That's Dacula city hall isn't it?

It is indeed Dacula. Good eyes!
it's like 3 miles away from me so i wouldnt have heard it anyway..
Oddly enough, the siren was never tested... and never used.

No kidding! I actually live in NE Gwinnett and saw that siren a couple times before it came down. I always had a weird hunch Dacula had an old fire siren of some kind too, especially considering that my town (Suwanee) had a 5, and Snellville has an old 2 by a park. Nowadays, my town has nothing in the way of sirens sans the two I have, but both of which are not in use.
