Civil Defense conducts monthly siren test on Oahu

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Oahu residents will hear sirens on Monday as the Hawaii State Civil Defense tests its outdoor warning sirens.

The 45-second steady tones will sound at around 11:45 a.m.

In addition, residents in areas surrounding Campbell Industrial Park, Honokai Hale, Makakilo, Kapolei Regional Park, Kapolei Golf Course, and the Coast Guard Station at Kalaeloa may also hear a "whooping" tone following the normal siren test. This tone tests the siren that would be activated in the event of a HAZMAT incident.

To report and problems or malfunctions, contact the Department of Emergency Management at 723-8960 or send an email to dem@honolulu.gov.
