Mesquite, TX - March 7, 2017 - The City of Mesquite has an extensive outdoor warning system (OSW) comprised of 25 sirens strategically located throughout the city. These sirens are designed to alert citizens, who are outdoors, to an eminent threat in the community. When sounded, citizens should seek shelter inside immediately and then seek additional information. The City encourages residents to purchase a NOAA weather radio to hear alerts indoors. While tornado warnings are the most common cause for siren activation, they are intended as an "all-hazards" alerting system.
When will sirens sound?
The City of Mesquite Office of Emergency Management will activate the Outdoor Warning System:
