The District of Ucluelet will be testing an emergency siren warning system on May 9th every half hour between 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.
The community is asked to participate by providing input to the Municipality through a survey. The District will also be testing its emergency notification services, to cellphones and landlines, at 10 am reminding residents of the siren testing. The siren will sound at a different location during the testing period. Following the testing, residents and businesses are being asked to complete a survey updating the District of where and what they heard at those times. This valuable feedback will then be used to help identify the number of sirens the community needs and potential locations.
The survey will be made available closer to the test date and will be available at www.ucluelet.ca. A hard copy of the survey will also be available at the Ucluelet Community Centre (500 Matterson Drive). Community neighbours Yuułuʔiłʔatḥ, Port Albion and other Area C residents are also encouraged to share their experiences during the test.
