This siren is located on the camups of IUPUI in Indianapolis. This was filmed during Marion County's test of the Outdoor Warning System which is conducted every Friday morning at 11. A 2001 can also be heard. The video quality sucks but the audio is alright. Note: this siren has been taken down in conjunction with the upgrade of all of the sirens in Marion County. The only siren's in the county now are various 2001 models.
