AUGUST SYSTEM TEST SET FOR FRIDAY, 26th

August 23, 202266Views

The Department of Disaster Management will test the National Early Warning and Multi-hazard Alert System on Friday, August 26.

The public is not required to take any action during the test, but it is a good opportunity to test emergency procedures at home, work or school.

Remember, equipment will sound for approximately 1 minute during a test, but in the event of an actual hazard, the sirens would sound continuously. In the event of an actual emergency, residents should tune to local radio or check the DDM website or social media profiles for detailed safety information.
