“Why can we hear sirens from North Main Street all the way on the other side of Mt Hope? … They operate as if they are driving through the middle of Manhattan and need to generate a signal that can be detected above a heavy-noise background. … [It’s] overkill for a neighborhood like Mt. Hope. Since this has only been noticeable within the last 5 years, I wonder if at some point the emergency responders got new equipment that is just louder. … [And] why does each siren run for so long?”
