Residents across Spencer County may have noticed that the emergency weather alert sirens have been going off at odd hours and under cloudless skies.

Fire Chief Nathan Nation, of the Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department, said he is fully aware of the problem and he hopes the glitch will be resolved within two to three days.

“We’re going to take the sirens offline until they can be reviewed by the people who are providing the service,” said Nation. “There shouldn’t be anymore accidental warnings.”

Nation said contrary to speculation, the misfires are not attributed to Spencer County’s 911 dispatch service being transferred to Kentucky State Police.
