Monthly siren test set for Tues­day

The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

The state’s monthly test of sirens for its out­door warn­ing sys­tem will be held at 11:45 a.m. Tues­day, the Hawaii Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency an­nounced.

There will be a steady one­minute sound­ing of all warn­ing sirens used to alert the pub­lic to any emer­gency that may pose a threat to life or prop­erty.

At the sound of sirens, peo­ple should turn on a ra­dio or

tele­vi­sion for in­for­ma­tion and in­struc­tions about an im­pend­ing emer­gency. Aside from nat­u­ral haz­ards, the emer­gency alert sys­tem is used for ter­ror­ist in­ci­dents or acts of war.

To re­port a prob­lem with sirens, call 270-7285.
