HIGH RIVER, AB: As part of Emergency Preparedness Week and the National Emergency Alert System, the Town of High River will carry out a loud siren test on Wednesday, May 8.

The alarm will sound at 11:55 am and will run for a few minutes. The Town has two sirens, one is at the Fire Hall on 5 Street and the other is by the community garden in the Northwest.

This testing is part of the Town’s ongoing emergency preparedness plan. In a real emergency, go to one of the following sources to find potentially life-saving information:

  • Tune in to local television and radio stations (Sun Country 99.7 FM, Eagle 100.9 FM and AM1140)
  • Look for notifications from Alberta Emergency Alerts
  • Check the Town’s Facebook page
  • Be safe and follow directions from emergency officials
  • If it’s safe to do so, notify neighbours, friends and family who may not have received a warning

Join Alberta Emergency Alerts to get notifications by phone, text, or email in the event of real emergencies, along with instructions and up-to-date information.
