Testing of the Emergency Alert System

January 23, 2015981Views

The
Department of Disaster Management is informing the public that the National
Siren System and National Emergency Broadcast System will be tested today, Friday,
23rd January at 2:00 pm.  The
test is carried out on the fourth Friday of every 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 is grateful to the residents of the BVI for their
ongoing support and cooperation in this regard.
