The Outdoor Warning Siren (OWS) system consists of 164 sirens strategically placed throughout the City of Dallas. OEM constantly monitors the system for function and coverage. We upgrade as needed.
The OWS system is tested on the first Wednesday of every mont at at 12:00 noon, weather permitting. We test according to regional guidelines.
The Outdoor Warning System is not meant to be heard indoors. The OWS system is designed to alert anyone outside that they need to get inside. Once inside and safe, turn on your NOAA weather radio, TV, radio, or other news source for more information and intructions.
Let us know how the system is performing by taking this short survey.
