Chicago Bears air-raid siren missing in action at Soldier Field

You wont hear the air raid siren at Chicago Bears home games this season

The home ground of the Chicago Bears sounds a bit different than it has in recent years. The air-raid siren that was synonymous with key defensive plays since 2018 has been absent.

Known as the Bear Raid siren, the sound was yanked off the slate of game-day operations as part of changes the Bears organization implemented heading into the current campaign. The team also didn’t play it during the lone home pre-season game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chicago Bears will no longer use the air-raid siren at home games. They didn’t use it in the first two home games and will not use it for the rest of the season.

The air-raid siren is one of several changes that the Bears game-day operations made.

So far this season, the Bears have relied on music, stadium chants and other old-fashioned crowd noise to cheer on the defense as the team rallied to get the better of the Houston Texans on Sunday with a 23-20 victory at the Soldier Field.

The Bear Raid became a staple when it debut in December 2018 during a 15-6 win over the Los Angeles Rams when quarterback Jared Goff threw four interceptions. They kept it going the following week while clinching the NFC North title against arch-rivals, Green Bay Packers.
