City department heads update board

All of the city’s 15 tornado sirens were tested last Thursday during Severe Weather Preparedness Week. But three of them failed to work, Lebanon Fire Deputy Chief Mike Baird reported to the Lebanon Board of Works at Monday’s meeting.


Since then, steps have been taken to fix the three malfunctioning sirens. And one had already been fixed on Monday, he said.


All Lebanon firefighters also participated in Rapid Intervention Training last week, Baird added, along with Zionsville and Whitestown fire departments. A RIT team is a team of firefighters that would go in and rescue a downed or trapped firefighter, Baird explained.


“The training went very well, with nothing but positive feedback from all involved,” he said. “This is something we hope we never have to use, but need to be ready for.”
