New warning siren paid for by fire millage

Residents who voted to approve a fire millage in Courtland Township already have a tangible benefit from the monies after installation of a fifth warning siren near Braeside Golf Course on Ten Mile Road.

Fire Chief Mickey Davis explained, “We now have five emergency warning sirens in Courtland Township. This is what some of our fire millage will be used for. Each siren costs about $20,000. When the National Weather Service issues an alert such as a tornado warning, Kent County dispatch activates all emergency sirens in the county. The sirens are tested at noon on the first Friday of the month from April to October. This siren is located at Braeside Golf Course on 11 Mile Road east of Courtland Drive.”
