How does the alarm system work?
The Town of Paradise will use the sirens in the event of an emergency, with an audible siren sound that will alert residents to the emergency. Voice command technology will also be utilized through the system to give additional instructions. The system will be tested regularly, and residents can expect to be notified ahead of time for testing events.
Check the Town of Paradise social media and website in an emergency for further directions.
Will there be any drills?
Yes! We’ve scheduled an Emergency Response Exercise on Thursday, June 15, 2023.
The EWS will be tested while first responders conduct drills for future emergencies. There will be opportunities for the public to get involved with the drill as well. Check back for more information on our website.
