The Department of Disaster Management will test the National Early Warning and Multi-hazard Alert System on Friday, April 28.
The public is reminded that 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 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. Sounding of the emergency sirens is a signal to residents to tune in to local radio or check the DDM website or social media accounts for detailed safety information.
