The monthly test of the all-hazard Statewide Outdoor Warning Siren System, coordinated with the test of the Live Audio Broadcast segment of the Emergency Alert System, is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Wednesday.
During this monthly test, all outdoor warning sirens will sound a 1-minute attention alert signal (steady tone). A simultaneous test of the live audio broadcast segment of the Emergency Alert System is conducted with the monthly siren sounding, in cooperation with Hawaii’s broadcast industry.
There will be no exercise or drill accompanying the test, according to the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency.
If you hear this siren tone in circumstances other than a test, follow emergency information and instructions provided by official government channels. This may be in the form of a local radio, television station broadcast, and/or cellular Wireless Emergency Alert.
