Bloomingdale detection system warns community of lightning

By Mark Reccek | Oct 10, 2015


The village of Bloomingdale has a new detection system that provides louder tones and a more visible strobe light on the side of each unit to warn residents of lightning near public parks.

The sirens operate from 6-9 p.m. daily and will activate when lightning is detected within 10 miles of the transmitter. When activated, a high pitch, multi-tone alarm will sound for 10 seconds, along with a flashing strobe light.

After 9 p.m., only the strobe lights will activate in the village parks.

A green LED light is on each unit to indicate it is working properly. In the event a red light is activated, residents are asked to notify the Bloomingdale Park District at 630-529-3650.
