The Town of High River will be holding a National Alert Siren Test tomorrow (May 8) at 11:55 am as a part of the Emergency Preparedness Week.

High River community has two sirens that will go off, one at the Fire Hall on 5th street, and the other one is located by the community garden in the Northwest.

While this is a test, in a real emergency the protocols are as follows,

- Tune into local radio stations like 99.7 SunCountry, the Eagle 100.9 and AM1140 or local television stations.
- Check for notifications from Alberta Emergency Alerts.
- Check the Towns Facebook page.
- Follow instructions from emergency officials and be safe.
- Notify friends, family, and neighbours who may not have received a warning, always make sure it is safe to do so first.
