Construction of New Siren System To Begin

Beaverhead County will be receiving a new siren system in the coming months. Beaverhead County DES secured grant funding from the Department of Homeland Security for the purchase, construction, and installation of a new siren and mass notification system. The new system will include three siren locations; Beaverhead Search and Rescue, Dillon Fire Volunteer Fire Department, and Block Hall at the University of Montana Western. The system will allow for varied siren tones as well as voice capabilities to warn the community in the event of an emergency.
