The Sedona Fire District and Coconino County Emergency Management will test the emergency siren system in Oak Creek Canyon at approximately 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 26.
This system is designed to notify Oak Creek Canyon and Uptown residents of severe emergencies that require evacuation.
The sirens will be used when the National Weather Service issues a Flash Flood Warning for Oak Creek Canyon. If the sirens sound, anyone in the canyon is asked to stop what they are doing, immediately get to high ground and tune their radio to KAFF 930 AM or 92.9 FM for specific directions.
Area residents are also encouraged to register their phone numbers in the CodeRED emergency notification system at www.coconino.az.gov/emergency. It is important to register all phone numbers to be contacted in an emergency.
