Definite Allertor. There's a history on this somewhere, I think.
I believe if I am not mistaken that thing was established somewhere to be a Mobil-Directo?
The motor looks to small to be a Mobil Directo. They could have modded the motor/motor housing.

Another from Arkansas. I am unsure if this is even a siren. If it is, it seems to be a Model 2 with custom shroud.

Definitely a siren if mounted on top of a pole like that, and at a fire station. Though I can’t see control boxes, which could have been removed or are mounted inside the station.

nope, thats a GCS Model 5 with what appears to be the top part of a Federal Signal Model 5 housing.

Thats a GCS Model 3 housing placed over a box, with the chopper/stator assembly mounted sideways inside the box. Photo credit 4j25. Located in Selma, WV.
I believe you mean Selma, VA?
Also that's a fantastically weird find! Any knowledge, theories or conjectures about how it ended up like that? Why would someone turn a vertical siren on its side?

I think I saw a wire going into the building.
Edit: Nope. It was just hooked up to the poles.

Not a siren, but I've seen them floating around New Jersey while looking on Google Maps. Anyone know what those things are?
