Control station

The D.E.W. Line, or Distant Early Warning Line, was a system of radar stations in the far northern Arctic regions of Canada and Alaska set up to detect incoming bombers between 1957 and 1985. Frlan’s air raid sirens were installed in the Escape Hatch room of the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum.
