Scranton Officials Reviewing Flood Siren Issue

April 22, 2024

The City of Scranton is aware of a programming issue affecting the Shawnee Avenue flood siren.

After work was completed on the Shawnee Avenue flood siren on Friday, April 19, the siren activated over the weekend, though there was no flood danger to the public at that time. The City disconnected power to the siren early Monday morning to pursue additional repairs.

Officials continue to communicate with the Lackawanna County Emergency Communications Center and we are working with the vendor to solve any problems with the device.
