What is Emergency Management?
Emergency management is the process of dealing with and avoiding risks, particularly catastrophic events that affect communities, regions, or entire countries. Emergency Management involves preparing for, mitigating, responding to and recovering from an emergency.
The Town has adopted a multi-hazards Emergency Management Plan that provides guidance on handling various emergencies and, if necessary, accessing additional help from other resources.

Outdoor Warning Sirens
Addison has 6 Outdoor Warning Sirens placed strategically around the Town.

The sirens are tested on the first Wednesday of every month at 1pm. They will not be tested if there is threatening weather in the area.
Our sirens can be found at the following locations:
