Dear Editor,

We, in Lander hear between 70 and 100 sirens, every single week, for over 5 years. Documented. 


The Civil Defense Siren has been abused almost 80 times, this year. 130 times, in 2021. Documented.

Sirens have been used, illegally, 5 times to celebrate sports victories, in Lander, this year. Documented.

State Law prohibits the use of Emergency vehicles, for anything other than an EMERGENCY.

Using Sirens to commemorate 9/11, is the Wrong thing to do!


Please do not let Sunday, 9/11 be destroyed by even more ridiculous sirens in our community.

In Desperation,

John Kidwell
