Emergency Siren Test in Big Sky on Wednesday May 21

Big Sky Fire
The Big Sky Resort will be testing its emergency siren located at the western edge of the Big Sky Golf Course on Wednesday May 21 between 10:00 and 10:30 AM.  The test will be very brief.

The siren’s purpose is to warn individuals of sudden and potentially dangerous high stream flows originating from Lake Levinsky.

While this is only a test of the warning system, should you hear this siren at any other time, those downstream from Lake Levinsky should heed the warning and immediately evacuate the area.

To receive emergency notifications for this and other types of community emergencies, please register your cell phone on the Ready Gallatin Emergency Preparedness Network System (EPNS) website ( so that you are called and can receive important instructions. 

If you have any questions, you can contact me via email at or by phone at the Big Sky Fire Department, 406-995-2100.
