TESTING OF THE EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM

September 23, 2010722Views

Thursday 23rd September 2010The Department of Disaster Management is informing the public that they will be testing their National Siren System and National Emergency Broadcast System on Friday 24th September at 2:00pm.  The test is carried out every fourth Friday of each month.


The public is not expected to react once the siren is sounded, as this is only a test. As a part of the test the public is asked to tune into ZBVI, ZROD, ZKING, OR ZCCR for test messages from the Department of Disaster Management.  This test is being conducted to assess the automatic capabilities of the Emergency Alert System. 


The Department of Disaster Management thanks the public for their cooperation.
