Things to Know About Warning System
A central control computer or encoder, operated by Haltom City Public Safety Communications personnel, sends a secure digital message to each siren, telling the siren to operate. The message is capable of activating one or all sirens by zoning capability. Once the siren receives the message, a motor turns the siren, allowing it to broadcast the warning in all directions.
The system in Haltom City is a network of five warning sirens placed on poles fifty feet from the ground surface. These warning sirens are placed in strategically located areas throughout the city.
