New warning siren paid for by fire millage

Residents who voted to approve a fire millage in Courtland Township already have a tangible benefit from the monies, after installation of a fifth warning siren on 11 Mile Road near Braeside Golf Course.

According to Courtland Fire Chief Mickey Davis, this is the fifth siren in the township. Each siren costs about $20,000. “We fund them through our fire millage,” he explained.

The other sirens are located at 11 Mile and Young, on the McIntyre farm on Courtland, at Ritchie and 15 Mile, and at Myers Lake and 15 Mile.

When the National Weather Service issues an alert such as a tornado warning, Kent County dispatch activates all emergency sirens in the county. The sirens are tested at noon on the first Friday of the month from April to October.
