50 Years Later, Cold War Sirens Remain in LA

Hosted by

During the Cold War, there were more than 200 civil defense sirens in Los Angeles to sound the alarm in case of a nuclear attack by the Soviet Union. The system was never used, but portions of it are still with us. Saul Gonzalez reports on those Cold War relics. (You van see photographs of those Cold War relics on our blog at KCRW.com/WhichWayLAblog.)
