City of Lake Ozark Outdoor Warning

Siren System Planning Study

INTRODUCTION

Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments has received funding to support this disaster and resiliency planning project from the Missouri Association of Councils of Government.

Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments is requesting qualifications from consultants and consulting firms, as well as engineers and engineering firms to complete a comprehensive Outdoor Warning and Siren System Planning Study for the City of Lake Ozark, Missouri.

PLANNING INITIATIVE

Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments is requesting qualifications to support a citywide comprehensive storm siren study and plan that will result in the citywide coverage of early-warning storm sirens being installed throughout the City of Lake Ozark, Missouri. The city currently has a number of existing sirens that have been installed over the years. The city wants to develop this plan to ensure that the current system and any future deployment of early warning sirens within the city are systematically integrated together. The city wants to complete a comprehensive storm siren study that will result in a planning document that will allow the city to implement a citywide storm siren improvement plan. City of Lake Ozark realizes the need for a complete storm siren plan and details best practices on how to install, deploy and make sure that the residents in all areas of the city are covered.

The comprehensive storm siren study and final planning document will look at using the Dual Tone Multi-Frequency Platform (DRMF) format with 10 signals per second and the plan to have all the sirens throughout the city on the same platform and how to deploy them effectively and efficiently when the weather warrants them being used. The plan must also take into consideration the partnerships with neighboring communities and Ameren Missouri, Bagnell Dam Early Warning System.
