Saw this on Instagram today, by a friend of mine who's also into Sirens. Neither of us know what it is, but it looks to me like an Erick siren. I don't know for sure, though, so I need your help.

Oh, apparently the image didn't attach. Hm. I guess it doesn't work on mobile. I'll try again later today and see if it works then.

Found this one in vacation and it was in my hunt video. In not sure of the exact model I think it's one if those sparton sirens that someone on the board has but I'm not 100% sure the image is upside down When I preview the post is there any way to fix that?

Thank you. Are there any other 115s still standing in MN? The Columbia heights ones were taken down recently.

Sadly, no, though there is a Soundmaster 125 on the watertower in Gibson MN.

Wow, I had no idea there was still a 125 left in Minnesota! I was worried the 115 was the last of it's kind here, and I guess it unfortunately is.

IIRC the Pequot Lakes Soundmaster was unfortunately deactivated...

What is this thing? I found it in Dahlonega, GA while poking around the UNG campus off a tip from the county fire chief, looking for an ES-2000...

Maybe a Master Blaster? It might be just a PA system.

Jackson, MI Fire Station 3 (closed). Look at the siren on the roof. Perhaps a Sparton? The siren is no longer used. It was turned off when the 2001 went up on a pole next to the Fire Station.

That appears to be a Darley model 3 or 5 missing the bottom part of the housing. Also, it's pretty funny that there is a West shore services truck in the pic.

Cool, I didn't notice the truck I'll have to look again. As for the siren the bottom isn't missing. Jackson had 3 of these at one point they all looked the same except the color. The ones at Fire Station 2 and 3 were red and one at the Airport that was a sea green color. The sirens at Station 2 and the Airport were removed. All were the same shape probably placed in the late 50's or early 60's. They were still active up till they were replaced by the 2001's in the late 90's. The one pictured is the only one standing. The other 2 were removed a long time ago. Thanks, for the info.
