The Adopt A Siren campaign's mission is to bring electronic, voice-commanded, outdoor warning siren systems to the population-dense areas of Cape Girardeau. This siren system will help alert our community of imminent danger such as weather or terrorism, and to notify our community when the danger is all clear. Please consider donating to our Adopt A Siren campaign by assisting in any way possible.
