Outdoor Warning Sirens

Royse City Fire Department currently operates 7 outdoor warning sirens with two more under construction. These sirens are tested on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 4:00PM. 

Did you know that outdoor warning sirens are NOT meant to be used as a warning system for people inside homes or buildings and should never be relied upon to wake you up? Outdoor warning sirens are meant to alert people outdoors that severe weather is imminent and they should seek shelter immediately. Remember to never call 9-1-1 when you hear sirens sound unless you have a true emergency.
