FIRST SYSTEM TEST OF 2024 SET FOR JANUARY 26

January 23, 202436Views

The Department of Disaster Management will conduct the first 2024 test of the National Early Warning Multi-hazard Alert System on January 26.

DDM generally tests the system on the fourth Friday of the month. While no action is required during the test, it is a good opportunity to test emergency procedures wherever you are.

Remember, activation of the emergency sirens is a signal to residents to tune in to local radio or check the DDM website, app or social media accounts for detailed safety information. During a test, equipment sounds for 60 seconds, but in an emergency they will sound continuously.
