If people need to get in from outside in the event of an emergency in downtown Bloomington, the fire department wants to let people know with specific voice directions in addition to the blare of a siren.
The Bloomington Fire Department wants to install an outdoor warning siren with public address capability on the roof of the Government Center, 115 E. Washington St., Bloomington.
"We would like increased capacity to provide information in case we need to direct people to safety," Fire Chief Brian Mohr told The Pantagraph.
Mohr provided information about the i-Force Electronic Siren to the McLean County Board Property Committee on Thursday afternoon. The Government Center is owned by the Public Building Commission but McLean County government and the city of Bloomington lease space.
