Guam - A $2,000,000 siren system that's been sitting in a warehouse can finally be used.  Office of Civil Defense Acting Administrator Chuck Ada told KUAM News, "We got notification from the Attorney General's Office late last week. We were able to settle with the litigants in the case and we're able to move forward."

15 sirens will be placed in low-lying areas and some will include scrolling marquees for those with hearing disabilities.  A bid will be going out for the installation. 

Civil Defense was unable to use the sirens for several years due to a procurement dispute that began back in 2006.
