Letter: Siren is money well spent

Just read an article in the Leader regarding the risk of flooding in the area, we have just moved into Sandilands from the Midlands and knowing nothing of where or who to contact about flooding, it was good to read this and good to know we can be warned about the risk of it all.

My husband and I agree that maybe there should be some sort of siren to alert people of the danger and we would very much appreciate being added to any list regarding information and help on how to deal with these kind of situations.

For safety purposes we think that tax payers money on this matter would be spent wisely if sirens where brought back as long as it helps people along the way to safety, no one wants to loose their home but especially their lives so we totally agree to sirens.

Many thanks for a good and important article.
