CITY WARNING SIRENS

The City of Munford uses its Civil Defense Sirens to notify the public of pending danger due to tornado and severe weather.

The City Siren Warning Signals are used as follows:

In case of TORNADO, sirens will blast in a continuous manner for 3 minutes.

In case of SEVERE WEATHER, you will hear a slow wailing signal.

The City of Munford tests its Civil Defense sirens at approximately 12:00 p.m. on  Wednesday's and Saturday's, in compliance with the City’s Emergency Operations Plan. Please note that when you hear the sirens on these test days, these are only tests to ensure that our sirens are working properly. It is a good idea to use these test drills as the time to practice your family’s emergency plan.

BE ALERT! KNOW THE TYPES OF WEATHER WARNINGS

Click here to go to the National Weather Service

The National Weather Service uses the words "advisory", "watch" and "warning" to alert you to potentially dangerous weather. Understanding these terms and knowing how to react can be a life saver.

Advisory

An advisory is issued when a hazardous weather or hydrologic event is occurring, imminent or likely. Advisories are for less serious conditions than warnings that cause significant inconvenience and if caution is not exercised, could lead to situations that may threaten life or property.

Watch

A watch means weather conditions are favorable for dangerous weather to occur. In other words, a "watch" means watch out for what the weather could do, and be ready to act accordingly. You may wish to alter or have a back-up plan for any outdoor activities or travel.

Warnings

For severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and flash floods, a warning means the weather event is imminent or occurring somewhere in the defined warning area and that people need to take shelter as soon as possible.

CAN WE FIND YOU IN AN EMERGENCY?

A Public Service Announcement from the City of Munford and the Munford Fire Department

Firefighters, emergency vehicles, and personnel may need to find your home quickly should an emergency occur. It is difficult for emergency vehicles to find homes and businesses whose address numbers are not properly posted. Clearly posted house numbers can save precious time should an emergency occur. Response time is crucial; seconds lost can mean the difference between life and death.

Tennessee Fire Code requires that address or building numbers shall be a minimum of 4 inches (102 mm) high with a minimum stroke width of 0.5 inch (12.7 mm). Additionally, when posting your address or building numbers, please remember to:

Post the numbers directly on your house, apartment, or garage.

Post the numbers so that they can be easily seen from the road.

Use numbers that are easy to read, not CURSIVE style.

Keep your house numbers clearly visible throughout the year.

Be sure your numbers can be seen at night.

Make sure your numbers are of a contrasting color for easier visibility.

Encourage your friends, family & neighbors to post their house numbers, too!

Drive by your house, business or apartment to see if you can see your numbers from the street. If you can clearly see your address or building numbers from the street - while you are seated in your vehicle - then there is a good chance they can be seen by emergency services.

If you have any questions about your address or building numbers, please contact the main Munford telephone number at (901) 837-0171.
