Eastman: Sprinkler system triggers siren inside building, event was ‘non emergency’


A Thursday night siren from Eastman Chemical Company in Kingsport is no cause for “alarm” according to the company.  

An Eastman spokeperson confirmed to WJHL that an alarm went off in one of their buildings due to a sprinkler system being triggered.  The company stated that they had no information on why the sprinkler system went off and that no fires or injuries occurred during that timeframe.  

Firefighters responded to the scene and the alarm was later turned off after officials received the all clear.
