Town Testing Emergency Sirens

HIGH RIVER – There will be a 3 – minute siren testing at noon on January 5 as part of the Safe Communities Alert Network or SCAN.

This testing is part of the Town’s ongoing emergency preparedness plan. All residents are encouraged to sign up for the High River ALERT system.

When sirens are tested, all registered users will receive a test notification. Test alert phone calls will come from 403-933-6568, Safe Communities Alert Network emails, and text messages from 89362.

In an emergency, go to one of the following sources to find potential 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 High River ALERT, SCAN or Alberta Emergency Alert
  • Log on to Facebook.com/highriver.ca, and Twitter @TownOfHighRiver
  • Be safe and follow directions from emergency officials

If it’s safe to do so, notify neighbours, friends and family of the situation who may not have received a warning.

Join the High River ALERT system to get notifications by phone, text or email in the event of real emergencies, providing instructions and up-to-date information: http://ow.ly/Nh7c50HkWJ9
