The city maintains two civil defense sirens. One is located at the entrance to Eagle View Elementary School and the second is on Co Rd 11 at Alpine Drive. These will be tested at 1:00 p.m. the first Wednesday of each month and otherwise activated for civil defense emergencies only. They are only designed to be an OUTDOOR warning. They may not wake you up especially in a modern well insulated home with an air conditioner running. We strongly recommend that you purchase a National Weather Service weather alert radio for your home. These radios can be programmed to sound an alarm when threatening weather approaches and are programmable to eliminate alerts that do not apply to you. You may also be alerted to civil defense issues via the established Emergency Alert System on radio and television broadcasts.
You can help in the fight against crime by reporting information about crimes to Crime Stoppers of Minnesota. Crime Stoppers of Minnesota is organized as a separate and independent organization from law enforcement for the purpose of gathering information that may not be otherwise available to them but can then help in their investigations.
