In an effort to expand the ways citizens can receive emergency mCodeRED logoessages or weather alerts in their area, the City of Hot Springs offers the CodeRed notification service.  Notifications are currently available by city website, social media and outdoor sirens (the latter in limited areas at this time). CodeRED allows residents the choice of receiving alert messages by email, text, or voice phone call.

Emergency Sirens

Within the city limits of Hot Springs, there are 19 outside emergency sirens, which sit on 55-foot poles with the solar power panels, giving the City of Hot Springs 100% siren coverage.

The siren additions have been funded by the City’s Stormwater Division over an eight-year period. The system is tested weekly, at noon on Wednesdays. Weather alerts are distributed from the National Weather Service, while other notifications can be broadcast from the Hot Springs Central Fire Station.

The emergency sirens are used to alert residents who are outside of their residences. For indoor alerts, the City’s CodeRED free notification service provides message by email, text or voice phone call. Along with weather alerts, CodeRED provides the following critical and time-sensitive information: missing persons/children, evacuation notices, boil water advisories, criminal activity, road closures/traffic alerts and shelter-in-place/lockdowns. For more information or to register or update your contact information, visit or call the Stormwater Division at 501-321-6743.
