If You Hear An Air Raid Horn... Test Alarm Sounding At 2 pm For Beaconites

Maybe you got the memo (translation: text/email/phone call) from the City of Beacon that the Groveville Hydroelectric Project will be testing its alarm system during the dam’s rehabilitation. “Tomorrow [Wednesday], July 17 at 2 pm you will hear a test alarm from the Groveville Hydroelectric Project. This is simply a step in the dam’s rehabilitation. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

We reached out to the City of Beacon’s City Administrator, Anthony Ruggiero, to find out what it might sound like. He thought it might sound “closer to an air raid horn.”

Sound up!
