Permits and Forms 

New Bremen utilizes a siren system to warn residents in the event of a tornado. The sirens will only be activated when a tornado has been sighted near or approaching the Village of New Bremen. The sirens will not be turned on for tornado watches, only for actual sightings of tornadoes or extremely high winds that could cause harm.

Sightings are confirmed by the National Weather Service, any law enforcement or fire department agency in the New Bremen area.

When sirens sound, residents are advised to seek cover immediately. The sirens will be sounded continuously as long as there is danger. When there is no further known danger, the sirens will be turned off. The stopping of the sirens is to be understood as the “All Clear” signal to resume normal activities.

If you live near a siren and notice it is not activating during the weekly test, please report the faulty siren by calling the village office at 419-629-2447 or post a concern via the village website.

NOTE TO NEW RESIDENTS:  All New Bremen sirens are tested weekly at noon on Saturdays.


FAQ Sheet

Once a decade, America comes together to count everyone living in the United States, raising national awareness of the decennial census and its invaluable statistics. The decennial census was first conducted in 1790, as mandated by the Constitution.

Data from the census provide the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to communities across the country to support vital programs—impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and public policy. They also are used to redraw the boundaries of congressional and state legislative districts and accurately determine the number of congressional seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Beginning mid-March, people will receive a notice in the mail to complete the 2020 Census. Once you receive it, you can respond online. In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that haven’t responded to the census.

The Census Bureau will never ask for a Social Security number, bank or credit card account number, money or donations, or anything on behalf of a political party.
