Avista to perform siren testing in Post Falls

Print Article

POST FALLS — Avista Utilities will perform periodic live tests of an emergency warning siren at the Post Falls North Channel Dam near Q’emiln Park from approximately 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Thursday.

Avista is in the process of upgrading the warning and evacuation system. To optimize the effectiveness and audibility of the siren, Avista will be conducting periodic tests of the various siren tones and public address capabilities. These soundings may last up to 5 minutes in duration and may be broken up into several activations.

Avista thanks the public in advance for its patience and cooperation during these tests.

Those with questions or concerns can contact Mac Mikkelsen at 509-495-8759 or mac.mikkelsen@avistacorp.com.
