I've lived in El Dorado my entire life, and when I was 7 I got into sirens. By the time I got into sirens, and most likely before I was born, we've had Whelen Vortex sirens. Recently, they put up Sentry 14v-b sirens around town and have neglected to connect them. When I realized we were losing the Whelens, it got me wondering what we had in the previous siren system. I've done as much research as I could, and I've found no proof of El Dorado's previous system. All I've found is a picture of a single rotor Denver/Sterling siren on top of the fire department, which in the early 2000s was demolished and rebuilt, so the siren probably went with it. My grandparents said they recognize the sound of the 2t22, so I suspect we had some of those, just like Little Rock. But then again, you can't be too sure. I've tried to use Google Earth to look at nearby scrapyards, but I haven't really seen anything except an object at a sheet metal dealer that somewhat resembles an EOWS rotating siren, but that's extremely unlikely. If anyone has any information about our previous sirens, and possibly where they are now, it would be appreciated.
