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 at approximately 10 a.m. Thursday, June 28.


This system is designed to notify Oak Creek Canyon and Uptown Sedona residents of severe emergencies that require evacuation.

The sirens will be used when the U.S. National Weather Service issues a Flash Flood Warning for Oak Creek Canyon. If the sirens sound, anyone in the canyon is asked to stop what they are doing, immediately get to high ground and tune their radio to KAFF 930 AM or 92.9 FM for specific directions.  

Area residents are also encouraged to register for emergency notifications at www.coconino.az.gov/ready. It is important to register all phone numbers to be contacted in an emergency.

For additional information call 928.679.8311 or go to www.coconino.az.gov/ready.
