City sirens sound only as a warning for residents outdoors to immediately take shelter: no siren sounds for a watch or an all-clear. If you are indoors during a storm, please tune your radio or television to a local station for warnings.
Siren tests are scheduled at 12:00 noon on every Monday, weather permitting.
Park Hills is exposed to diverse hazards, which have the potential for disrupting the community, causing damage and creating casualties. Natural hazards include floods, fires, tornadoes and severe storms. Park Hills also faces the threat of hazardous material accidents involving the transportation, manufacture and storage of chemicals on the highways and in the city's industrial areas.
To address these potential threats, the Emergency Management Division maintains the city's emergency management plan. This plan provides the framework upon which the City of Park Hills prepares for, responds to and performs its emergency response functions during times of natural or man-made disasters or national emergencies. The plan is based on phases of Emergency Management:
See activities which governments, organizations and individuals develop to save lives and minimize damage. You can find information here about the new FEMA Flood Insurance Preferred Risk Policy. Read ready in three. Prepare an insurance inventory of your household.
Actions to minimize loss of life and property damage and provide emergency assistance.
Short and long-term activities which restore city operations and help return the community to a normal state.
The Emergency Managment Department also provides public education and training. We plan and hold training exercises with city departments and outside agencies. We advise the public through the media about the severity of the emergency and the response and recovery under way.
To assist you in better understanding and preparing for the potential threats we face in Park Hills, we have included additional information on specific topics as well as links to other emergency management and weather sites on the Internet.
