NATRONA COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT INSTALLS EMERGENCY SIREN AT AIRPORT

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Casper / Natrona County International Airport announces the installation of a new emergency siren at the Airport. The new siren is both tone and voice operated where County Dispatch and Emergency Management can set off a tone for different types of emergencies or can issue either pre-recorded or live voice instructions. The siren can be used for any type of emergency, from weather alerts (i.e. tornado warnings) to hazardous material incidents (i.e. evacuations or shelter in place instructions). Instillation of the siren was started October 26th and was completed and tested November 5th. Prior to instillation at the Airport the closest warning siren was at the intersection of Zero and Seven Mile Road. “We’re grateful to County Emergency Management for installing this siren at the Airport,” said Glenn Januska, Airport Manager. “With our residential housing and RV park on the Airport, plus the dozens of businesses and hundreds of employees who work at the Airport each day, this new siren location will be tremendous for communicating emergency and alert information.”

The County’s Emergency Management plan is to have all populated areas of the County covered by warning sirens. With the instillation at the Airport the areas of North Six Mile and Airport Acres as well as the Airport now have coverage by the warning system.
