HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency will be conducting siren testing on Wednesday, Aug. 27 near Camp Erdman on Oahu. The testing will take place between 9 a.m. and noon.
Residents in these areas may hear the siren sound for six to eight 30-second to one-minute intervals during the identified timeframe. Testing will include checks of the public address system and short blasts known as "burps." Technicians are testing to ensure that recent work on this north shore siren was completed properly.
HI-EMA encourages the public to make use of other methods of warning including, but not limited to, text notification systems and NOAA Weather Radio.
