Description:
Civil Defense Sirens (outdoor warning devices) are all over the US (and the world)! Is there one of these structures in your community, legacy of the Cold War paranoia?
Expanded Description:
During the height of the Cold War in the U.S., these devices wailed every Friday afternoon. Kids in nearby schools were drilled what to do in an actual nuclear emergency. They were instructed to crawl under their desks, hands clasped behind their heads. As any baby boomer knows, this is known as the "Duck and Cover" position... pie in the sky protection against a nuclear holocaust.

These outdoor warning sirens have many modern day uses besides warning you to "Duck and Cover". Across the midwest of the United States, they are actively used for severe weather warnings. Along coastal regions they may be used for tsunami warnings as well. Some small towns use them to call the volunteer firemen to duty.
Instructions for Posting a Outdoor Warning Sirens Waymark:
1) Using a GPS, record the coordinates of the siren.
2) Take a photo of the siren and upload it to the gallery of your waymark.
Bonus info: Any additional history or recollections would be great (such as when was the last time you heard the siren).
