Siren test­ing

Whangarei Report - - FRONT PAGE -

TSUNAMI sirens will be tested on the morn­ing of Sun­day Septem­ber 30 as part of twice-yearly checks co­in­cid­ing with the start of day­light sav­ing on Sun­day. The siren net­work — from Te Ha­pua in the north to Man­gawhai in the south and Ruawai in the west — will sound twice: firstly at 10am for 10 min­utes and again at 10.30am for 30 sec­onds, and will be mon­i­tored for any faults. North­land has 190 out­door tsunami sirens, more than any other re­gion in the coun­try with 109 sirens in the Whanga¯ rei district, 60 in the Far North and 21 in the Kaipara district.
