HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Civil Defense and the Department of Emergency Management tested warning sirens on Oahu this morning at 11:45 a.m.
People around Oahu should have heard a steady one minute tone on all sirens. Some areas also should have heard a whooping sound after the first tone.
If the siren in your community does not sound or does not operate properly please call the Department of Emergency Management at 723-8960 to report it. You can also email the department at email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Residents now have the option of reporting malfunctioning or vandalized sirens on-line. Visit the City's Siren Trouble Report page at http://www3.honolulu.gov/DEMSiren/ to file your report as well as upload pictures.
