Parsons tests sirens; all but one are fully functioning



Good news and bad news for Parsons residents with the city's storm warning sirens.

The police department tested the seven sirens and all but one are now working.

City officials says there is a problem with the programming and antenna on the siren in the south-western edge of town.

"In this time of year when you set a storm siren off people are listening and they become worried, but today we felt so many people worried about if those storm sirens worked and we needed to get that done and make sure," says Parsons Police Chief Scott Gofourth.

Officials say they have a storm siren technician working on the siren that is not working properly.

Posted at 12:09 PM CST - statement from the City of Parsons:

The Parsons Police Department tested the City Storm Sirens at approximately 10 a.m. this morning. All of the sirens but one are fully functioning.

The siren located on west Jothi Ave. (southwestern edge of town) has been reported to the storm siren technician for repair. The rest are working including the one at Lake Parsons. Thank you for your cooperation.
