During the Cold War this Los Angeles County siren was tested at 10am the last Friday each month.  The siren was dismantled for restoration, but was too much of a project, and after a year the siren was scrapped. 

Note the hoisting davit that can be seen at the left corner railing.  These were used on siren towers to lift tools, small parts and most often fuel.
