TSUNAMI SIRENS

North Harbour News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Coastal Auck­lan­ders are ad­vised not to be alarmed when the re­gion’s tsunami sirens have one of their twice yearly tests at noon on Septem­ber 24. Co­in­cid­ing with the start of day­light sav­ings, 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 tsunami sirens in Up­per Har­bour are lo­cated in West­park Marina, Hob­sonville Air­base (Har­rier Point) and Her­ald Is­land. To sign up for tsunami alerts, ac­cess tsunami zone maps, and make an emer­gency plan, visit auck­land­civilde­fence.org.nz and fol­low them on Twit­ter and Face­book.
