New Outdoor Warning Sirens Added to Existing Boone County Siren System

December 21, 2021 –The Boone County Office of Emergency Management has added an additional 4 new outdoor warning sirens sites this year throughout Boone County. These sites were identified as geographic locations that had outdoor warning siren coverage gaps. With these additions, it brings the total number of outdoor warning sirens in the county to 92.

Below is a list of the new outdoor warning siren locations:

Bluebird Lane near Route N
