TSUNAMI SIREN ALERT

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

The end of day­light sav­ings on April 2 will trig­ger the city’s tsunami sirens. There is no cause for alarm as it’s part of Auck­land Civil De­fence and Emer­gency Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee’s twiceyearly siren test. 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. The tests give res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to find out what the sirens sound like, so they can be pre­pared in the event of a real emer­gency.
