Siren test­ing

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

If you’re at the beach on Sun­day, don’t be alarmed if you hear an un­usual siren. At noon on April 6, Auck­land Civil De­fence will run the first of its twice-yearly tsunami siren checks on the north and west Auck­land coasts to co­in­cide with day­light sav­ing end­ing. The test se­quence will be three sets of tones, each sig­nalling a spe­cific ac­tion. They will sound for one minute each and there will be 15 sec­onds be­tween each set. In an emer­gency, tones will sound for longer.
