DEL CITY, Okla. – Del City is adding a few new measures to be more prepared this coming storm season.

They are installing a new system which is also part of a $3 million bond for new fire apparatus.

The project comes in slightly under $200,000.

It will include eight new sirens installed in the middle of each mile section of Del City.

The solar-powered system has the capability to announce pre-recorded messages, live messages and be activated from three different locations in Del City.

Eagle Lake in the 3400 block of East Reno will be the first location to get the system at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

As for the fire apparatus, two rescue pumpers and one ‘77 aerial truck are currently under construction. 

That work is not to exceed $2.4 million and is expected to be under budget.

Design is also underway for new brush pumpers.
