Why have I been hearing the fire siren activated above City Hall?
The fire siren has traditionally been used in the fire service for alerting firefighters when there is an emergency.
Cashmere Fire Department utilizes the fire siren when an active fire is called into 911. The siren is not set to activate for medical or miscellaneous 911 calls.
The siren will activate for about 30 seconds which allows both the Community and Cashmere Volunteer Firefighters to know that there is a fire in Cashmere or mutual aid is requested for a fire outside city limits.
