Lithopolis tornado siren broken

The tornado siren in Lithopolis stopped functioning this summer, but repairs will be made and it should be up and running again in September.

According to Lithopolis Mayor Eric Sandine, the Bloom Township Fire Department discovered the siren was not working during one of the department’s weekly siren tests this summer.

"They tested it, but it didn’t go off," said Sandine, who added the siren’s breakdown was probably due to its age as it is one of the oldest tornado sirens in Fairfield County.

The siren is the only tornado siren in Lithopolis and is located at Market and Columbus streets. It is a single use (tornado) omni-directional siren.

Sandine said the village of Lithopolis and Bloom Township will split the $2,886 cost to repair the siren.

The repairs will involve fixing the existing siren and will not include any new or additional features.
