Today at 1 pm, our Emergency Warning Siren will be tested. The siren will be activated for four (4) minutes as a test to ensure that the equipment is working properly, and will also continue to be tested daily at noon.

The Altona Emergency Warning Siren may be activated when Altona is threatened by any hazard. The siren is to alert anyone outdoors of a possible emergency, and 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 should not be relied upon for early warning for individuals indoors. It is highly recommended that each home and business have another means to receive warnings and notifications, such as an Emergency All Hazard Radio, or by signing up for notifications through the CONNECT system.

CONNECT is a digital communication tool that allows you to receive timely news and alerts directly from the town. You can choose the delivery method that is the most convenient for you—either email, text, or a telephone call. We are using CONNECT to inform you about:

Changes to service hours, procedures, or schedules for the “business” of the town, like offices, landfill, waste collection, deadlines, etc

Status of public works and infrastructure projects underway

Local emergency alerts

You can sign up at www.altona.ca/connect to receive notifications in your preferred method.

Big news indeed! Excited to see the next steps!BIG BIG BIG NEWS! WE ARE MOVING!

We are beyond excited to partner with Friesens with our biggest project ever. We are moving into their building at 35 6th street SE (across from subway). This new facility will be an incredible blessing to our community. Enabling us to offer more, and reach more teens. There will be lots of steps taken and fundraising before we move in. The project budget is $395,000 with a targeted completion/move-in date of December 2021. This is by far the biggest project we have ever taken on, and know the community will support us in this endeavor. For more information stay tuned to yfcaltona.com and our social media.
