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.

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