Long Description:
The siren is within private property of Eastman Chemical Company, so the coordinates are for the Eastman Road bridge overpass over Lincoln Street which provides a good line-of-sight for taking pictures of the siren.

I recently learned that the siren was donated by Eastman to the City of Kingsport, who is now responsible for its testing. Previously, this unit was tested each Saturday at noon sharp, but now is less frequently. Audible range covers more than just the nearby community and downtown Kingsport. I use to hear it when we lived 4-5 miles away over a ridge on the northeast side of town and now roughly the same distance southeast.
