La Crosse gets new siren


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.
