WARNING!
SIREN PRODUCTS:
Sirens are an integral part of an effective audio/visual emergency warning system. However, sirens are only short range
secondary warning devices. The use of a siren does not insure
that all drivers can or will observe or react to an emergency
warning signal, particularly at long distances or when either
vehicle is traveling at a high rate of speed. Sirens should only
be used in a combination with effective warning lights and
never relied upon as a sole warning signal. Never take the right
of way for granted. It is your responsibility to be sure you can
proceed safely before entering an intersection, driving against
traffic, or responding at a high rate of speed.
The effectiveness of this warning device is highly dependent
upon correct mounting and wiring. Read and follow the
manufacturer’s instructions before installing or using this
device. The vehicle operator should check the equipment daily
to insure that all features of the device operate correctly.
To be effective, sirens must produce high sound levels that
potentially can inflict hearing damage. Installers should be
warned to wear hearing protection, clear bystanders from the
area and not to operate the siren indoors during testing.
Vehicle operators and occupants should assess their exposure
to siren noise and determine what steps, such as consultation
with professionals or use of hearing protection should be
implemented to protect their hearing.
This equipment is intended for use by authorized personnel
only. It is the user’s responsibility to understand and obey all
laws regarding emergency warning devices. The user should
check all applicable city, state and federal laws and regulations.
Code 3, Inc., assumes no liability for any loss resulting from the
use of this warning device.
Proper installation is vital to the performance of the siren and
the safe operation of the emergency vehicle. It is important to
recognize that the operator of the emergency vehicle is under
psychological and physiological stress caused by the emergency situation. The siren system should be installed in such a
manner as to: A) Not reduce the acoustical performance of the
system, B) Limit as much as practical the noise level in the
passenger compartment of the vehicle, C) Place the controls
within convenient reach of the operator so that he can operate
the system without losing eye contact with the roadway.
Emergency warning devices often require high electrical
voltages and/or currents. Properly protect and use caution
around live electrical connections. Grounding or shorting of
electrical connections can cause high current arcing, which can
cause personal injury and/or severe vehicle damage, including
fire.
PROPER INSTALLATION COMBINED WITH OPERATOR
TRAINING IN THE PROPER USE OF EMERGENCY WARNING DEVICES IS ESSENTIAL TO INSURE THE SAFETY OF
EMERGENCY PERSONNEL AND THE PUBLIC.
