The Gratis Township Trustees want to extend our appreciation to Dave Anderson at the Preble County EMA, Butler Rural Electric Cooperative, Thomas Electric Services, Bill and Sharon Bates of Tri-Mac Manufacturing, Gratis Eagles, the village council of West Elkton, John Cassidy, and Glen Deaton, for their contributions and work in securing and installation of our new weather/tornado siren located at the West Elkton-Gratis Twp. Fire Station.
The old siren was over 60 years old and was having some issues that needed to be addressed. This is the 3rd siren that the trustees have installed, the first being at the Preble Shawnee High School and the second at Beechwood. These sirens are tested the first Wednesday of each month at noon, for three months.
