Officials in Knox Township took a relatively inexpensive step to make residents safer during severe weather.

They held a dedication ceremony Friday for five new warning sirens, the first ever in the township.

Each of the sirens honors a person or families who’ve made a positive impact on the township as well as Columbiana County.

Trustees say they only spent about $42,000 on the project.

“We got them at a pretty good deal with First Energy,” said Knox Township Trustee Gregg Carver. “They were actually getting rid of theirs and we took them and refurbished them, worked on them and looked for locations for them and we have them pretty strategically located in the township.”
