TSUNAMI SIREN ALERT
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.
