Not much to say about this show of utterly cheap stupidity, and recklessness. Tightwads in the wealthy community of Brookfield wouldn't upgrade their alarm system, and instead will leave those cell phone deprived losers who are not listening to a radio or watching TV, to fend for themselves. Just a tip; I hear tornado's sound like freight trains coming. There are so many holes in their thinking that it almost doesn’t seem real. Go Walker. WISC Channel3000:
Brookfield, a suburb of Milwaukee, is getting rid of its tornado sirens. City officials said the main reason for the elimination is cost.
The federal government is mandating that warning systems get upgrades, which would cost $100,000. The 38,000 residents in Brookfield will rely on cellphone text alerts.
Brookfield cannot afford this, so the City Council voted to shut down the system that some residents describe as a "Cold War-era relic."
A public alarm system is a Cold War relic, and another example of freedom and liberty?
