Outdated weather siren to be replaced in Muhlenberg Co.

MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -

City leaders in Breman are replacing an outdated severe weather siren.

The city recently received a $20,000 homeland security grant to replace a weather siren at the fire station.

Fire officials say the current one is more than 50 years old and can only reach people in a two mile radius.

The new siren will be rotating and heard seven miles away.

Fire officials hope to have it ready to go by spring.
