New outdoor storm siren installed at McCurtain County campus
January 3, 2020
DURANT, Okla. – When it comes to spring storms, advance warnings are critical. Assisting in this effort is the recent installation of a new outdoor storm siren at the Southeastern Oklahoma State University McCurtain County campus.
The siren was purchased using hazard mitigation funds provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management. The FEMA grant will pay for 75% of the cost.
In addition to serving students at the McCurtain County Campus, the new siren will alert approximately 40 nearby residential homes, 22 business properties, and the neighboring Kiamichi Area Technology Center. The City of Idabel has partnered with the MCC campus to test and activate the siren along with their existing sirens. This siren provides coverage for an approximate 1 mile radius near the Highway 70 bypass and Highway 259 intersection.
