Authorities to test sirens in Oak Creek Canyon

SEDONA, Ariz. — Authorities are testing sirens in Sedona and Oak Creek
Canyon to let people know what to expect in an actual emergency.

The sirens are set to go off around 2 p.m. Thursday.

A recent wildfire that scorched 31 square miles in Oak Creek Canyon has made
the area prone to flooding.

The U.S. Forest Service says it will close all public recreation areas in Oak
Creek Canyon, starting July 7, because of the risk of flooding.

Authorities say residents, visitors and business owners should have a spot
picked out on high ground where they can retreat during a flood.

Residents of Coconino and Yavapai counties also can get emergency alerts on
their phones by signing up online.
