FLORENCE — The Lauderdale County Commission is working to get more outdoor weather sirens.
Currently the county has 63 sirens installed throughout the county. These include three on Tennessee Valley Authority property.
The commission has authorized Lauderdale County Emergency Management Director George Grabryan to work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to try and secure funding for more outdoor sirens.
Grabryan said the county has been approved for four additional sirens through FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant program.
“The county is pretty saturated with outdoor sirens right now, but these will just add to help us cover more of our heavily populated areas of the county,” Grabryan said.
