TESTING OF THE EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM
Wednesday 23rd May, 2012 – The Department of
Disaster Management is informing the public that they will be testing the
National Siren System and National Emergency Broadcast System on Friday 25th
May 2012. 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 would like thank the public for their ongoing support and
cooperation in this regard.
