Tsunami Siren Cedar Road Parking Lot



Two sets of tsunami warning system speakers have been strategically located to maximize emergency notification to priority areas of town. One speaker is located at the Cedar Rd. parking hub and the other one is at the Amphitrite Point parking lot. This system is designed to warn residents and visitors of an impending tsunami or other significant emergency event.

Monthly testing of the phone notification system and tsunami warning system takes place at noon on the third Wednesday of each month. Public input on the testing is always welcome at info@ucluelet.ca.

 For more information on emergency notification, please contact Fire Chief Rick Geddes at rgeddes@ucluelet.ca.
