With blue skies and drying puddles, the Town of Altona Emergency Operations Centre is closing today, May 4, as of 12:00 pm. Residents can still call in questions or concerns during regular business hours to the Town of Altona office at 204-324-6468, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Altona Public Works team continues to monitor water levels and drainage, but will now shift to cleaning up from the preventative measures and return to some of their regular spring duties. The Tiger Dam is being taken down and packed up to be re-deployed elsewhere in Manitoba, and residents are asked to keep away from the 9th St NW area as the clean-up is underway and will take some time.
Sump pumps all around town are still running regularly, and the ground continues to be extremely saturated. Residents who have not yet re-routed their sump pumps to drain onto their yard or to the street are asked to do so to prevent the wastewater system from becoming overwhelmed during the next rainfall.
It’s Emergency Preparedness Week! The Town of Altona’s Emergency Warning Systems will be tested today at 1:00 pm, with tests of the CONNECT notification system as well as the Outdoor Warning Siren.
The warning siren will be activated for four minutes at 1:00 pm today as an annual test to ensure that the equipment is working properly. The siren will also continue to be tested daily at noon for a few seconds.
The siren may sound when Altona is threatened by any hazard to alert anyone outdoors of a potential emergency and let them know to seek shelter right away. When the siren sounds for longer than 30 seconds, seek shelter and tune in to CFAM 950 on your radio to find out what the threat is, and how to protect yourself.
Outdoor sirens are an effective method of outdoor notification, but shouldn’t be relied upon for early warning if you are indoors. Each home and business should have another method to receive warnings and notifications, such as notifications to your email, cell phone or landline through Altona Connect. http://www.altona.ca/connect
