I'm trying to identify a siren that was removed between 2009 and 2012. All I have is low-resolution Street View and an image where parts of it are visible.

It's a modified Siro-drone. It's been posted on here before.

I guess this isn't technically a mystery siren per say since I finally zoomed in enough to read the tag, but it is a mystery to me who came up with this engineering plan and why they would do this. This is at the Backwater Fire Department in West Virginia, I couldn't figure it out but took a bunch of photos and than promptly forgot about it LOL. The siren is an HOR Siro-drone with some modifications, ungodly looking modification that serve no purpose LOL

Holy crap THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'll update this on my siren map immediately! (And thanks to Rheems1, though I would have found his post sooner if he hadn't botched the name of the fire department - Back Creek Valley, not Backwater, hahaha!)

Actually, I believe I may have found the modified Siro-Drone! This fire department was just built in the same county two years ago, and it appears they've re-installed this thing in the new tower! Just look at it! All refurbished (and still with the useless horns)!

Now I have to find out if BCVVFD has a new siren. I'll go by there sometime soon.

That's not a vent. It's on a courthouse. Appears to be a modified Federal or GCS Model 5?

Not only that, but it's right next to a volunteer fire department, which is what brought me to that location in the first place. Probably a modified Federal.

Is the bottom siren an M-10 or something else? A few things about it look a bit off. I assume the top siren is a Darley Champion.

Indeed it is a Sterling, owing to the fact that one side is 8 port and the other is 16.

This is a weird looking siren located in Milton, Wisconsin. I’m guessing it’s either some modified Screamer, SoundMaster, or maybe even an E57 (most likely not, even though it looks like one).
