So I recently found these, and I while I was doing this, my purpose was to find Bumblebolts, and as I can see in the picture, I can see outlines of where the stripes would've been at...
When I found these I was completely shocked, They show the RCMs, panels, and everything!!!
Video is in the 2nd link.

Old news, but still cool nonetheless.
My knowledge excels on the Federal Thunderbolt siren and SiraTone EOWS sirens. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Wow this one has a jailbar? I thought it was a later 6MC Thunderbolt.

That one in Warren interests me, it appears it is still active as it has moved in different Google Streetview times

I noticed that too when I found it, hopefully it's active.

If I recall, I think they said they rarely test it and will only use it for public events or something of the sort.

Public events, yes. And I think the tests are random and at the order of the Mayor.

I remember hearing somewhere the mayor wanted to sound it every September 11th in memory of what happened that day.
