New siren installed

Evers Electric Company of El Dorado installs a new tornado siren, centrally located in Walnut Ridge near the Walnut Ridge Public Schools sign where Main Street crosses the railroad tracks. Mayor Charles Snapp said they city had one siren with a part out that could not be repaired and another siren that was originally an air raid siren and has to be started manually. “With weather patterns changing it was time to take advantage of the technological advances in the new systems and step up the level of early warning protection for our residents and businesses,” Snapp said. “As Walnut Ridge grows, so must our quality of life and safety factors improve.”
