“We haven’t been hit directly by a tornado, but we’ve had some close calls,” Borough Councilman Edward Falconer said. “We put the siren in to protect the people of Mill Village.” And neighboring LeBoeuf Township besides. The siren can be heard in both municipalities, Falconer said.

A tornado alert system  at the Mill Village Fire Hall will sound three long blasts when the National Weather Service next issues a local tornado warning. The warning means that a tornado has been spotted in the area or has been indicated on radar.

The siren can be activated remotely by Erie County emergency management dispatchers or by hand using a button, which is located inside the Mill Village Volunteer Fire Department.

Three minute-long blasts will signal people to take cover because a tornado is possible. The safest place, according to the National Weather Service, is away from windows and generally in a basement or low-level interior room, such as a bathroom, closet or hallway.

Mill Village Borough Council, LeBoeuf Township Supervisors, local businesses such as Cindy Glover Trucking, and private citizens all combined resources to pay the $2900 price tag for the new alert system, which allows officials to sound a different tone from the existing fire siren..

Most areas of Erie County are served by tornado sirens. Different communities use different tones and configurations of tones to signal severe weather, according to the Erie County 911 Center.
