Is that Model 5 active? If it is, someone's ears are getting blasted when it goes off. :lol:

Here is a very low mounted ACA Screamer in Radisson, WI. It was recently moved from an old water to this short pole.

Never seen a blue screamer. Also, why do people mount sirens THIS low? Are they saving money? Or plain lazy?

In some cases, it's all they have available.

I don’t have any real sirens, but I will one day. But for now, I just enjoy making homemade sirens.

Works for small towns. The siren doesn't need to be on a tall pole since it doesn't need to cover a long distance, and makes it louder in the local area since it's lower to the ground. Some places can't afford to hire a company to install the siren on a pole, and mounting it low is the easiest or only option they have.

This Model 5/7 in Baton Rouge at a Fire Department that I like. But I must ask, Whats with the Extremely low mounted Model 5/7s? Seeing a low mounted Model 5/7 kind of seems like the new norm by now.

I officially own an ASC E-class as of 2024. I also own 3D printed mini sirens such as a 3T22, Cyclone 125, and Screamer.
