actually, it's the fire siren. It's sounded each time the fire department is dispatched on a call.

Sorry but it rings at 9:30 to signal the curfew warning.

While the fire siren may still signal the curfew time each night (curfew hasnt been enforced in years) - that is not the main reason for the siren. Again, that is a fire siren that was installed years ago to announce to local fire dept volunteers to report to fire station for dispatch on a call. It was installed in the days before pagers but is still used today. I can assure you that that siren is activated for every call for the Madison Fire Dept

If the original poster had told what time it was when the siren went off, there would be no doubt what it was for.

It is used for the curfew, or in case of a air raid on the town of Madison in time of war. Madison should be proud to be equipped with a air raid siren. If you hear the siren go off other than 930 pm head for the hills.

Actually, It is used for curfew at 9:30, and it DOES go off for IN TOWN structure fires...The fires have to be inside the city limits for it to be set off.
