Outdoor Warning Sirens

The City of Richland Hills has two outdoor warning sirens in place in the City to alert residents and visitors who are outside of impending inclement weather or other emergency situations. The City's outdoor warning sirens were replaced in July 2022. These sirens are digitally connected to the National Weather Service (NWS), and they are activated when the NWS puts out a severe weather warning affecting Richland Hills.

The outdoor warning sirens are not intended to alert a person inside a home or business of an approaching emergency situation.


Our outdoor warning sirens are located at:

  • Popplewell Drive and Booth Place
  • Park Place Drive and Spruce Park Drive


The outdoor warning sirens are tested monthly on the first Wednesday of the month at 1 pm.

It is imperative that all residents and visitors stay aware of approaching severe weather conditions and utilize local media and social media as well as phone and computer applications to stay alert. The outdoor warning sirens are not intended to alert those who are indoors.
