Residents and businesses are reminded that emergency system components including Early Warning Sirens, Smart Radios, the DDM Alert App, and FM Alert receivers are all tested on the fourth Friday of the month. Although no action is required, the BVI community is encouraged to use the test to practise their home and family emergency plans.
