LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—A new siren was installed in La Crosse, on Thursday, on the corner of St. James and Rose Streets.
The new siren replaces one that hasn't been working for months.
It's a new type of siren that sounds at a lower frequency, designed to make it easier for people inside buildings to hear.
The whole project costs about $20,000 and was budgeted as a capital project.
The siren was tested after installation was complete Thursday afternoon.
It will be tested again next Wednesday, with the others, during the monthly test.
