ALBION – The Albion Fire Department this Saturday will be testing the fire whistle on top of the Village Office from noon to 3 p.m.

“If you hear it going off, please do not be alarmed,” said Jeremy Graham, the Albion fire chief. “There is no emergency.”

The fire whistle hasn’t been used in more than a decade. Some of the downtown business owners used to complain the siren was too loud.

The Fire Department sought to make it operational again and received permission from the Village Board.

“In the near future, we may use it on larger and more serious calls,” Graham said.
