Location of the Tuesday siren in the Financial District

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I'm just wondering if anyone knows the physical location of the air raid siren that goes off at noon on Tuesdays. I'm assuming this was installed sometime during WWII, but am curious as to why it is still used or serves a purpose.

I have located a website that describes the emergency warning system of 56 outdoor sirens that sound every Tuesday at noon: http://www.sfacs.org/sirens.html

I'm not sure of the downtown siren is part of this system, but since I have heard the noise from other neighborhoos, I have a suspicion that it is.
