Bath Township is seeking a grant for a pole-mounted siren that would alert residents to tornados and other emergencies.
Deputy Township Administrator Vito Sinopoli said the new siren would replace a mechanical model currently in the cupola at the Fire Department and would supplement an existing siren at Revere High School.
It would provide an "early warning alert for a variety of potential situations" to residents, businesses and surrounding areas, Sinopoli said.
Bath is asking for a grant from the Summit County Emergency Management Agency.
The grant, if awarded, would not require matching funds from the township.
The siren would be installed at the Township Center.
