Emergency siren policy changes in Downers Grove

July 5, 2011 (DOWNERS GROVE, Ill.)

Officials can now trigger the sirens if they determine there is an imminent threat from a tornado or high winds.

Some Downers Grove residents were upset that the warning sirens were not used when a tornado touched down in June.

A Plainfield official said the suburb will also be reviewing why sirens did not go off in all areas of that village.
