About FEMA Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning

The 4 phases of Emergency Management are:

Storm Sirens

Sirens are designed to be heard when citizens are outside their home or business, so they may take immediate shelter. People inside of homes or businesses will not always hear them. People indoors should rely on radio, television, cable override, and alert radios to keep them informed and let the sirens inform those out of doors.

The City of Branson is covered by seventeen (17) sirens and conducts tests the second Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m.; unless there is questionable weather then it is the third Wednesday. The City of Springfield also conducts siren tests at this time.

The City of Forsyth is covered by three (3) sirens and also tests on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m.

Taneyville and Rockaway Beach are covered by one (1) siren each.

The Office of Emergency Management maintains and annually updates the Local Emergency Operations Plan outlining multiple agencies responsibilities during a disaster.

Taney County houses a Homeland Security Response Team funded through Federal Department of Homeland Security Grant money.
