The Early Warning Siren System for the Tooele Chemical Depot is comprised of many Whelen WPS-2806 and WPS-2810 sirens, located throughout Tooele County. The sirens replaced a previous system of few Sterling sirens, as well as a Thunderbolt 1003 and many 3T22s.

The system is tested weekley on Wednesday at 4PM in 30 seconds of whoop, with a test message after the test stating, "This is a test. This is a test of the Tooele County Emergency Warning System. This is a test and only a test". The system will sound in whoop in the event of a hazardous material spill, for natural disasters, or for any other emergency if necessary. For some volunteer fire stations, they sound the unit at the fire station in wail.

In 2008, Tooele County donated 5 whelen 2806s to the city of Woodland Hills, UT. They are activated in the event of an event of an earthquake or wildfire.
