Hearing a siren in a dream can symbolize a warning or call to attention in your waking life. But the dream can be more nuanced than just that.

It suggests there may be a situation or issue that requires immediate attention or action.

Alternatively, seeing a siren in action, such as an ambulance or police car, often represents an urgent situation or crisis. It could indicate feelings of helplessness or fear, or it could be a sign of your own health or safety concerns. Both of these dreams urge you to pay attention to your personal well-being or the well-being of others around you.

A siren is deep and fascinating dream concept to pin down. To really say without any doubts, I'd have to understand the dreamer's past and current environment.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of hearing a siren may be an auditory manifestation of the subconscious mind's attempt to alert the ego to unresolved conflicts or repressed desires.

Somewhat similarly: It is a call to introspection, a beckoning towards the exploration of one's inner world. Seeing a siren in action, however, is a visual metaphor for the externalization of internal turmoil. It signifies the dreamer's unconscious recognition of a crisis, often related to personal identity or societal roles. Both instances suggest a need for self-examination and resolution, but while the former is a call to delve into the psyche, the latter is a projection of internal strife onto external symbols.

Dreaming of hearing a siren is a spiritual call to awaken, a divine alarm clock urging you to heed an important message from your higher self. It's a sign that you are being guided to pay attention to a significant matter in your life that you may have been ignoring. Seeing a siren in action, by contrast, symbolizes the manifestation of your inner turmoil in the physical realm. It's a spiritual signal that you are in the midst of a crisis, and it's time to seek divine intervention or guidance. Both of these dreams are spiritual nudges, urging you to awaken to your true self and address the issues that are hindering your spiritual growth.
