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.

Recent Announcements


DAYTON—A&M Cold Storage and Trailer Leasing announced it will expand its New Bremen facility, creating 10 new jobs. The company has already begun construction on a 10,000 square foot building project at 715 Streine Drive in New Bremen.

A&M Cold Storage and Trailer Leasing rents and leases refrigerated semi-trailers and portable walk-in coolers/freezers for the transport and storage of food, beverage, pharmaceuticals, composite materials, chemicals, and other materials that require climate control.

“Our goal is the construction of a new office building and warehouse to allow us the space to hire new employees to support the historical growth trends of 30% for the past 10 years. We are pleased to work with JobsOhio and the Village of New Bremen to make this expansion a reality,” Allen Mescher, A&M’s President. “We appreciate all their help and guidance with this project.”

The headquarters building will be used for additional office and warehouse space with acreage for trailer and equipment parking.

“As the nation’s logistics and distribution networks continue to adapt to the changing economic needs, refrigeration is critical. The ability to store and transport products at the proper temperature ensure food, medicine and other products move safely across the country,” said Julie Sullivan, the Dayton Development Coalition’s Executive Vice President of Regional Development. “We’re excited to support A&M Storage’s growth in New Bremen.”

JobsOhio supported the project with a $40,000 Economic Development Grant. The project will retain six jobs. Financing is through Minster Bank and the general contractor is Baumer Construction.
