I'm always amazed to see sirens kludged together like that. I guess I'm fortunate to live somewhere that has funding available to repair or replace broken sirens.

Looks like a B&M siren of some sorts, it seems to me that the original motor burned out and as such they either took a rotor off and slapped a pully there to keep the siren working.
....I dunno, that top picture looks a bit squirrely if you ask me.

It's a B&M 20-AR-7 with one of the rotors removed. Either the motor died or they didn't have three phase. It hasn't been used in 20 years and doesn't work anymore, according to the town.

Does anyone know where this siren was located in Miami?
