Obscure Cellphone Company Shows How to Do It.
IN RECENT YEARS THERE HAVE BEEN several instances where small-town citizens have started complaining about those pesky fire sirens making those horrible noises whenever one of their neighbors has an emergency and needs help. And when the local VFD builds a new firehouse in a different location, a war breaks out when they start constructing a tower for the house siren. Getting the Yuppies’ permission to erect a tower for your siren is a difficult struggle at best.
But fear not, a possible solution may have been discovered by an upstart cellphone company called NextG Networks. Their game plan came to light last week in Mt. Sinai, New York (Long Island), when the Demarco family came home one evening and found a 40-ft. metal pole sticking out of their front yard. They soon learned that within a few days there would be a platform placed on the top with an array of cellphone equipment on it.
Apparently NextG had applied for a permit to erect their mini-tower, but the town of Brookhaven had not approved it. So, going on the presumption that since the permit was never denied, then it would be ok to build it, up it went.
