Why use outdoor warning sirens?
Sirens are still the most effective method to warn the population at large in the shortest amount of time. People who may be outdoors at ball games, in their yard, or anywhere else where they are not in contact with the normal news media channels such as radio, TV or local public address systems.
Even with the global conflict reduced, there are still many areas that sirens still are effectively used to warn people of possible threats to their safety.
How are they activated?
Radio control is the most popular method of activating sirens. To activate the siren system, the operator presses a button and a radio signal is transmitted. The signals are picked up by the receivers at the sirens. They decode the paging signals to determine what they are to do. A particular signal may instruct the sirens to give a weather warning call, while still another may cause the sirens to stop their sounding. With the new generation of communication signal processors, the variations are limitless.
American Signal is providing state of the art technology with both electronic tone and voice and mechanical tone only sirens and speaker arrays. These units have redundant functions and testing capabilites that provide quiet tests, automatic polls and activation at your fingertips during an emergency.
