Every community is responsible for warning the public in case of an emergency. Know your local mass warning and notifi cation systems. Army installations are likely to have multiple systems:
• A voice announcing system using exterior speakers, commonly termed “Giant Voice,” and interior speakers or sirens.
• Interactive, community notifi cation systems to provide voice and/or data messages to multiple receivers—telephones, cellular phones, pagers, e-mail, etc.
• Information Assurance broadcast across Army computer networks that overrides current applications.
• Sirens with varying patterns depending on the type of emergency broadcast throughout the installation.
• Overseas, this system includes warning sponsored Family members living off base, ideally by integration with local or host-nation systems.
Methods of getting your attention vary from community to community. TV and radio stations will broadcast emergency messages. You might hear a special siren or get a telephone call, or emergency workers may go door-to-door. Be prepared to take emergency actions.
