Using LRAD to Alert for Fire Emergencies

(Courtesy of KTVU)

“LRAD, meaning Long Range Acoustic Device, is a high powered speaker system that North Bay fire departments are interested in acquiring. The system emits a shrill sound followed by spoken instructions such as “shelter in place” or “wildland fire, evacuate now.” The speakers would be strategically mounted on structures to cover wide areas or be mobile to evacuate specific areas.

While all kinds of media will remain crucial, everything from mass media to social media to wailing air raid sirens, this is the system that cannot only wake you up, but inform you as to what’s going on, immediately.”
