At 9 am on Monday, July 10, Town crews will be conducting maintenance on the Emergency Siren, resulting in a quiet test of the Town’s emergency sirens.

A quiet test activates the siren for just a few seconds, allowing on-site crews to determine if the siren system is functioning properly.

This testing is part of the Town’s ongoing emergency preparedness plan. All residents are encouraged to sign up for Alberta Emergency Alerts. Other emergency preparedness information can be found on the Town’s website.

In an 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 facebook.com/highriver.ca, and/or Twitter @TownOfHighRiver
  • Be safe and follow directions from emergency officials
  • If it is safe to do so, notify neighbours, friends and family who may not have received a warning
