Hello everyone. Long time siren enthusiast here. I don't have much history on these two beauties yet. They both sound at noon every day with a 5 second blast. I have lived here for close to 30 years and not once has either siren failed. Controllers have failed twice in that time. Both failures signaled the sirens into a 3 minute alert for the noon whistle. The siro-drone on top of the decommissioned water tower was refurbished sometime in the mid to late 90's. I remember seeing an article in the local paper. On-line archives only go back to 2003, so i'll have to head down to the library and do some physical digging. I intend to keep this post updated as I collect history and possibly when the city will take down the water tower (along with the siren). <-- I was informed by my neighbor who is a city council chair that this maybe happening within the next few years. Ritzville also had a third siren on top of the old city hall. I found only one picture with a quick search on Google. I believe it was a Sterling M10. I'm in the process of finding someone with knowledge of what happened to the siren when it was removed during a remodel around 2002. Anyway, Enjoy!!
