Curious Mind: Jerome siren carries across the canyon

Q: Occasionally I hear an alarm or a siren across the Snake River Canyon in Jerome County. What is it?. A: “The only siren that I definitely know of is the siren that blows at noon in Jerome,” said Linda Helms, Jerome County Historical Society Curator. “The siren was started in about 1919 to help notify the firemen and residents that a fire had taken place. The early firemen were all volunteers, and this was a fast way to communicate and ask the firemen to meet at the fire station then go to the fires. It also blew at noon signaling lunch break for workers and at 10 p.m. curfew.”
