Absolutly nothing. Until about 3 years ago, the STH-10 down the street would sound for prison emergencies. I'm now trying to talk with the facility director about putting it into service elsewhere

I live in New York so we don’t get any tornados. There are deactive fire sirens, though. They are old and rusty and most likely don’t work. There are Two Model 2s, and One 500.

In my area they are really only used for tornado warnings. My town hasn't been under one in over 6 years at least though. Which means we are probably due for another one any time now.

Both Douglas and Sarpy counties do alert for severe weather events and testing. Severe weather events being a tornado warning (they will do a second sounding if there is a confirmed tornado), a high wind warning (74 MPH or greater), and recently seen in March, a Flash Flood Emergency. I assume they would also sound if the city was under attack for some reason. I cannot really confirm this but I do believe for tornado emergencies they sound attack.

Of the few Iowa counties I know of
Guthrie County and most of central Iowa runs alert for 3 minutes every 5--10 minute for tornado warnings, towns like Bagley and Yale run their Darley and Erick siren respectively at noon and 1 PM. In Dallas County, Dexter runs their model 5 for fires and weather. Down in Lucas County in Southern Iowa, Lacona runs its 3T22 for noon, fire, and weather. Our rule during deer hunting season, if you hear Lacona's noon siren its time to head in for lunch!

Found this interesting...looks like Fayette County, KY, uses Westminster chime for Severe Thunderstorm Warnings and Tornado Watches. I assume they use the standard alert tone for Tornado Warnings

My county, Putnam County, TN, only uses their sirens for Tornado Warnings, and use Alert, except TTU, which uses wail. No other functions are used, except for a Tornado Warning on April 5, 2011, when the sirens went off in attack. Still don't know why they went off in attack. The system has always done Alert. The sirens test for 30-45 seconds. During tornadoes, they do a 3 minute cycle, and will do more if needed. I know some of the information is kind of irrelevant, but I figured I'd share it.

Here is the video of the sirens sounding in Attack:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVQuOol0aSA
(sirens heard: FS 2001-AC, and FS 2001-130)

2001-AC location: 36.182815, -85.488356
2001-130 location: 36.183529, -85.455925

Fun fact: The 2001-AC heard was down since 2015, due to a computer board needing to be replaced. It has been fixed as of January, 2019, after someone mentioned it in the newspaper: http://herald-citizen.com/stories/what- ... iren,33568
