The siren at Trinidad was installed as part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA) grant to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services. That grant funded the installation of sirens or siren components at (listed north to south) Orick, Big Lagoon, Trinidad, Clam Beach, Manila, Samoa, Woodley Island, Fairhaven, Fields Landing, and Shelter Cove. Humboldt County Public Works also supplied components for some siren sites. In addition, the Pacific Gas and Electric Company installed a siren at King Salmon and provided a generous donation of siren components for installation at the other sites. The 11-site siren system installation is nearing completion.
