Emergency Siren Notification Program
In light of recent years’ wildfire disasters throughout the state of California, the City of Sierra Madre will be launching its Emergency Siren Notification Program.  The Siren is located at the City Yards facility, which is near the Canyon and Urban-Wildland Interface areas.  The Siren is intended to be a notification to the entire community of an emergency situation.

To ensure the reliability of the Emergency Siren Notification Program, testing of the Emergency Siren will occur quarterly. The Siren will be sounding for a few minutes to monitor its functions and effectiveness. 

For the most up-to-date information during an emergency, subscribe to the City's Facebook Page. After "Liking" the page, under "Following" select "See First" to make sure that you are getting the City's notifications right away.
