Thanks. As an add-on it appears Surry siren #32 was either moved 900' South of it's current position or just outright removed. It's very hard to tell with the new icky imagery.

Considering how the system is no-longer to be used, I'm surprised that sirens that are on property are still standing... I think by now they would've at least contacted Dominion Energy to get it off their porch. :|
Holler!

South Boston has a series of Sentry Sirens than I remember from growing up there. Here is what I’ve found (other than the new addition at the FD)

36°43'05"N 78°54'25"W

36°43'57"N 78°54'52"W

36°43'52"N 78°56'05"W

36°42'20"N 78°55'26"W

These are all identical, with the horn extensions left in. I think they’re single phase 10v2ts. There may be more but this is what I remember, feels like the east side of town should have one but no luck.

Leesville Dam also has a water release siren, I believe a model 5

I think it is about time we solve the mystery of the Whelen in Falls Church.

It already had been solved... for a good while (unless if Bijay had just now changed the pin).

Sirens may not be sexy, but they sure work.

Yes it's been so for about two years now. I didn't figure out the original cell-count until about a month ago.

There is an 8-port shroudless...something (possibly a Model 3) behind Settle's Garage in Flint Hill.

And in not too far away Bentonville, there is a Sterling M on the building next to the Bentonville Rd railroad crossing.
