Submitting Media to The Siren Archive
Thank you for your interest in submitting media to The Siren Archive! Here are a few guidelines to follow...
Media (photo, video, or sound clip) must be of a siren, horn, whistle, or other outdoor warning device which is used to warn of an emergency or disaster. This includes fire sirens, tornado sirens, etc. and/or their auxiliary components, such as control boxes. The best photos are of wild sirens in their natural habitat- proudly perched high upon a pole or a roof. However, photos of sirens lying on the ground that are tame, dead, or are in need of rehabilitation will also be accepted.
Photos should be of the actual siren or component itself, not of a building or other object with a wee tiny little siren barely visible in the background.
Media should be submitted with the following information, if possible: Location of siren (town, county/parish, and state/province,) name of agency that owns or operates the siren, and the name of the person who took the photograph or made the recording (for acknowledgement and copyright purposes- you want to see your name on the Internet, don't you?)
Media that have been stolen from someone else's website will not be accepted. The contents of a website are the intellectual property of the owner and are protected by copyright laws. Permission must be obtained from the owner for material to be used elsewhere.
Please do not steal media from another website and pass yourself or someone else off as the photographer. If you do, we'll eventually find out and remove the picture.
There are two ways you can submit media...
If it is in digital format, E-MAIL it to us at sirenpics (at) comcast (dot) net
If you have photos or recordings and no way to convert them to digital format, you can snail-mail them to us at J. Marcoz Emergency Vehicle, 1090B Third St., North Versailles, PA 15137, Attn: Webmaster. It is best to send a copy of your work. If you wish to send an original photo or recording, it will be converted and returned to you; however, we can not and will not be held responsible for anything that may happen to it after it leaves your possession. Please be sure to include your return address inside the envelope!
Thank you once again for your interest in submitting media to The Siren Archive.
