The next time you hear a tornado siren go off, you can be pretty sure that Bobby Jackson has had a hand in it — literally.
Jackson has the job of maintaining the county’s 45 outdoor warning sirens, including 14 in the city of Jasper and one in Cordova. Those 15 are managed by the cities’ police departments and tested monthly, except in inclement weather, when the test is postponed until the next day. Setting one off during a storm might lead residents to think it’s an actual alert rather than a test.
