Monthly siren, alert test on Monday

HONOLULU — The state’s monthly test of the 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. Monday.

The warning sirens are used to alert the public to emergencies. During this monthly test, all warning sirens will sound a one-minute attention alert signal (steady tone). The attention alert signal informs residents to turn on a radio or television for information and instruction for an impending emergency, or if in a coastal inundation area, evacuate to higher ground.
