Outdoor Warning System

The City of Forney’s new outdoor warning system will have twelve siren towers strategically placed around Forney city limits. Installation and testing of this new system is expected to be completed by the end of summer 2022.

Outdoor warning systems are intended to alert nearby residents who are outside of their homes, or buildings, in the event of a public emergency. When sirens are activated, residents should seek shelter indoors and tune to local news sources to gain further information on the emergency.

There are three specific trigger points for activation of the outdoor warning system: A confirmed tornado or tornadic activity, 1.25” (ping pong ball size) hail, or sustained winds of 70 MPH plus winds.

This exhibit displays where the new towers will be approximately located. The new warning system will have the ability to add more towers as needed. More information on this project will be available soon.Warning Siren Map
