The City of Fort Saskatchewan will be testing  the emergency siren system on Monday (May 8) at 11 a.m. 

Fort Saskatchewan has three emergency sirens across the city, which are used to alert residents of emergencies such as:

  • Severe weather events, including droughts, windstorms, snow or ice storms, hail, rainstorms, or tornadoes
  • Wildfires
  • Power outages
  • Pipeline or container ruptures
  • Dangerous good spills, fire, or explosions

Testing of the sirens is done a few times every year including once during the spring, once during the fall, and whenever maintenance is done.
