Alarm System

Outdoor Warning System
The Cities of La Porte, Morgan's Point, and Shoreacres use an Outdoor Warning System (PDF) to notify citizens in the event of a chemical emergency.  

Take Shelter

During a chemical emergency, the sirens may be activated. The take shelter siren sounds a "whoop, whoop" tone. 

All Clear
Once the threat has ended, an all clear siren will be sounded. The all clear siren will sound a tone similar to an air horn. Once the all clear siren has been issued, it is safe to go outside.

Tests
The Outdoor Warning Sirens are tested every Saturday at Noon. If you hear a siren other than at this pre-determined time, you should assume an emergency exists and Shelter in Place.
