It is unthinkable to know that the Mayor of our City (Cedar Park) justifies the removal of warning sirens based upon his belief that no one understands them. That is absolute BS...it is more likely the Mayor thinks his constituency is all a bunch of dumb rednecks. If the warning siren saves any lives at all, they are well worth the investment. And, maybe we need to educate our citizens on the existence of then sirens to improve understanding (if it really that great a problem). Gawd...will someone with common sense run against this idiot?

Warning sirens are just useless noise. They do not convey any information about the threat or how you should respond. Much better warning systems include radio, television, phone and internet. All of these new technogolies eliminate any need for useless sirens that make loud noise that damage public health.
