New Outdoor Warning Sirens Installation & Testing Next Week

Fire Department Badge

The City of Branson Fire Department will help install four new outdoor warning sirens around the community next week that will replace units that are more than 30 years old and are no longer serviceable.

Work will begin on Monday, May 18, 2020, and is expected to be completed by Wednesday, May 20, 2020.  Once installed, the outdoor warning sirens will be tested individually. There may also be system-wide testing of all 23 outdoor warning sirens.

New outdoor warning siren locations:

  • Buccaneer Boulevard - Southside of the Branson Junior High near the City Water Tower
  • Gretna Road - At the Employee Entrance of White Water
  • Fall Creek Road - On the property of the Meadows Water Treatment Plant.  This unit replaces an Outdoor Warning Siren on Country Bluff Drive
  • Champaign Boulevard - On the property for the new Fire Station #4.  This unit replaces an Outdoor Warning Siren on Enterprise Lane

Drivers are asked to be careful driving in these areas as utility trucks and workers may be on or adjacent to roadways.

These sirens are used to notify people who are outdoors at area attractions, golf courses, water parks, and shopping malls to seek shelter indoors and to seek information. The sirens could mean anything, including, but not limited to, flooding, a severe thunderstorm, or even a tornado. That is why when the sirens sound, it’s important to find a safe place indoors then find out what is going on. As a reminder, the City also performs a monthly operational test to the outdoor warning sirens on the second Wednesday of each month.
