SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WALA) – It’s been 14 months since the city of Spanish Fort received a grant for emergency sirens throughout the city. The sirens were supposed to be in place in the spring of 2014, but city officials say they won’t come until fall now.
“We are still in the process of trying to make arrangements for all the land where these are going to be. We have four of the five spots secured and the fifth one is at Five Rivers on the Causeway and it’s nearly complete,” said Bruce Renkert, with the City of Spanish Fort.
Renkert says he thinks they’re only a few weeks from a final approval.
The five sirens will be placed at Five Rivers, Rockwell Elementary, Spanish Fort Middle School, City Hall and the Churchill subdivision. The Eastern Shore city will be the first municipality in Baldwin County to get sirens.
