Conestogo: they disconnected it around 2007. They took it down to restore it. Woolwich Twp told me back in 2011 IIRC they were one day going to use it for tornado warnings.

Baden: hasnt been active for many years. It's got rust holes now.

Plattsville: do not know what siren it was, or if it was a siren. It's gone now they moved the station.

Tavistock: they test the siren once a month, but I think it serves as backup to the pagers if they were to ever fail.

Dashwood: should still be active. I recorded it a couple years ago they used to test every second Thursday at 7pm.

Arva: should still be active and test every Monday between 6-7pm I think. Youd have to email them.

Grand Valley: they used to test nightly at 6pm but I haven't heard it test since 2016. I've heard it for fire calls since then.

Dundas: has been offline for as long as I can remember.

St. Mary's: I recorded one of their last siren tests in November 2016. The fire station siren should still sound for fire calls, but they no longer test it. Had no idea the downtown siren was gone.

I don't know if the township still does those annual siren tests. They were excessive, and there really wasnt a point to it. They dont test the Model 5/7 because of the Saturday farmers market in downtown. The only way to hear it would be in an emergency.

Well when I last talked to the township they said they do it in the fall and haven't heard anymore since I called about it in I think in May of 2018.

Clinton has a Model 2 at the municipal building. Seaforth has an STH-10 at the municipal building that is tested every Saturday at 1 PM, I believe.
