OnGuard Siren Alerting Solution


Reduce weather safety risks at vulnerable locations, such as golf courses, schools, sporting fields, area parks, and more.

Thunderstorms and lightning can occur rapidly with little warning, sometimes catching key safety decision-makers off guard. If you are responsible for adults or children playing, practicing, working, or enjoying the outdoors as inclement weather approaches, you must be fully aware of potential hazards and have an evacuation plan ready. This is where the DTN OnGuard Siren Alerting Solution can help.
