Emergency Management

Emergency Management is the discipline of preparing for and reacting to natural and man-made emergencies, such as:

• Tornados, floods, earthquakes or wildfires
• An influenza epidemic
• Blackouts or hazardous materials incidents
• Terrorist hazards


The Town of Trophy Club is required to file an emergency plan with the state of Texas, and update it every five years. All Town management and emergency response personnel are required to complete emergency management classes through the National Incident Management System (NIMS.)

TC ALERTS SIGN UP


  The Town of Trophy Club has instituted TC Alerts, an emergency notification system that will send rapid emergency notifications to residents and businesses.
Residents will receive notifications directly from the National Weather Service regarding threatening weather in our area, as well as Town news from staff (if this option is selected). TC Alerts will also be the official “rain-out” line for sports events and Freedom Dog Park closings.
TC Alerts allows you to choose how you want to be alerted: app, text, email or phone. The success of this service relies on YOU. Having your latest contact information is the only way to ensure that we can contact you with notifications. Please sign up for TC ALERTS – it only takes a minute to enroll!

Outdoor Warning Sirens

The Town of Trophy Club's Outdoor Warning System consists of several outdoor warning sirens located throughout the Town (Harmony Park, Freedom Dog Park and at the intersection of Trophy Club Drive and Durango Drive).  The sirens are designed to warn people who are in outdoor areas such as parks and sports fields of a possible emergency. Although you may hear the sirens in your home, they are not meant to be heard indoors. The sirens may be activated one at a time for a localized emergency or they may all be activated simultaneously for a town-wide emergency. The Outdoor Warning Sirens are part of an emergency system designed to provide immediate and valuable information to citizens.

If you hear the sirens while you are outside, go inside and seek shelter immediately and tune to local media to get more information.  Please do not call 9-1-1 for severe weather information. Call 9-1-1 only to report life-threatening situations. 

 
The siren will produce a steady tone signal for three minutes. The sound will have a natural decrease/increase due to the rotation of the siren head. The sirens will only be initiated in the case of severe weather directly threatening Trophy Club as reported by the National Weather Service, a storm spotter, or certain Town employees.  Sirens will be activated for the following conditions:


• A tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service
• Tornado or funnel cloud reported by trained SKYWARN storm spotters
• Sustained winds in excess of 70 mph
• Reports of  hail larger than 1.25 inches

Siren Testing


The Outdoor Warning Sirens are silently tested every day to ensure that the system is functioning correctly. Audible tests of the system are performed on the first Wednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m., weather permitting. 


Be Prepared

For weather emergencies, you may wish to purchase a battery-powered NOAA Weather Radio, and store it with spare batteries.
