Outdoor Warning System

The system in Haltom City is a network of five outdoor warning sirens placed on poles fifty feet from the ground surface. These warning sirens are placed in strategically located areas throughout the city.

The Outdoor Warning System (OWS) is known by many as "tornado sirens" or just "sirens". However, it is important to understand that the OWS is designed for all hazards. As the name implies, the system is designed for people that are outdoors. Those indoors may be unable to hear the OWS for various reasons (radio or television is on, vacuum cleaner going, etc.). The OWS should only be used as a supplemental warning tool for individuals. OWS can be used to alert residents of tornadoes, hail, hazardous material incidents, civil emergencies, and any other impending hazard that could adversely affect the lives and property in the general vicinity.
