What do I do when I hear the siren?
If it’s noon the second Thursday of the month and the siren sounds for just 20 seconds, then no action is needed. It’s just the monthly test!

If you hear the siren any other time, follow the instructions found on one of the following Town’s emergency information sources:
- Listen to 92.7 Lake FM Radio
- Visit the Slave Lake Website
- Check Alberta Emergency Alert
- Visit the Town of Slave Lake Facebook page
- Check the Slave Lake Twitter Feed

Find links to the Emergency Information Sources.
