Soldiers, Family members, Civilian employees, and Contractors, as well as Retirees or post visitors are protected from natural disasters or other emergencies, in part, because of the Giant Voice alert system, which broadcasts important messages throughout Fort Riley.
The post's Mass Notification System, also known as "Giant Voice," consists of a series of towers that have loud speakers mounted on top to notify the community of pending emergencies or natural disasters.
These messages are tested. The scheduled weekly test of tornado siren and giant voice system is Friday's at noon. During tests, messages are broadcast two times.
