During severe weather, the storm sirens in McDonough County are activated by the 911 call center in Macomb. When a warning from the National Weather Service includes a specific community in the county, the dispatcher activates the sirens for that town. Bushnell ESDA was in contact with the Director of McDonough County 911 shortly after the storm on June 29th, to question why the sirens were not activated in Bushnell and Prairie City, as we were included in the warning area. The director has assured me they are investigating the incident. Further, we have a tech coming to work on the malfunctioning siren at the Recreation Center that activated during the night of July 5th. The remaining 3 sirens in Bushnell and the siren in Prairie City have been tested and are working as they should.
