REGINA – A Saskatchewan city is trying to be proactive when it comes to severe summer weather.

After being attached to city hall in Melville for decades, the city’s siren was recently activated as part of a warning system.

Mayor Walter Streelasky said it could be used in many situations, such as fires, a train derailment, floods or tornadoes.

Melville is also home to hundreds of employees of C-N Rail and many dangerous goods travel on the railway tracks every day.
