Re: “Weltex” siren identity confirmed - E.D. Bullard Model 3H

More new info! Recently the Camas Valley FD in Oregon restored their Bullard, and posted about it on their facebook.

Re: A Maryland Mystery

So I looked up both addresses from the pictures on google maps and looked through street view to find that the timeline didn't show those sirens throughout all views. Not to mention that those two were not even 2 miles away from each other. So just to ask, when do you think those got removed? 1st b...
