Coconino County Emergency Management, Yavapai County Emergency Management, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office and the Sedona Fire District will test the emergency siren system in Oak Creek Canyon on Tuesday, July 16 at approximately 10 a.m. The system notifies Oak Creek Canyon and Uptown Sedona residents of severe emergencies that require evacuation.
During emergencies, sirens will be used when the U.S. National Weather Service issues a Flash Flood Warning for Oak Creek Canyon. If the sirens sound, people in the canyon are asked to stop what they are doing, immediately get to high ground and tune-in to KAFF 930 AM or 92.9 FM for specific directions. Area residents are encouraged to register for emergency notifications at www.coconino.az.gov/ready.
