    • The same resident began a discussion about tornado sirens and the lack of them in SH. The repose was that people ignore them, they’re not effective over long distances and that the sirens don’t mean a tornado is coming – just to watch for one. There is also a high cost to maintaining the sirens. The township will investigate working with Macedonia dispatch to alert people via their cell phones, the same way police and fire do.
