The Fire District shall maintain and keep the Arcata noon whistle in operation.

The noon whistle has been a part of Arcata's personality for a long time. The cost of maintenance is very minimal. The whistle heralds back to a bygone era when many whistles blew at noon from Arcata's many mills. It also trumpets the commitment and courage of many years of volunteer services performed by our community members. It is one of the things that makes Arcata unique in a positive way. Shall we now just be known for pot and plazoids? The noon whistle is the first barrier in fending off some well intentioned idiots from removing old McKinley from the Plaza. Shall we also remove the crescendo of frogs in spring, the sound of geese overhead in fall? - just because some shortsighted board of director's says so? The Arcata noon whistle is a reminder of our past - both good and bad. The whistle helps to remind us of who we are and our place here - where the Wyott Indians once camped.
