Siren Tests Scheduled For Tuesday

Posted January 31, 2022, 6:30 AM HST ·Updated January 28, 11:05 AM

The monthly test of the all-hazard statewide outdoor warning siren system is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1.

During this monthly test, sirens will sound a one-minute  alert signal. 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.

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 a cellular wireless emergency alert.

Emergency management and disaster preparedness information is located at the front section
of telephone directories in all counties. For the latest information from the HI-EMA, or to sign
