Siren testing is scheduled for the Kalaupapa Settlement and National Historical Park on Molokaʻi from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, June 15, 2016.

The Hawaiʻi Emergency Management Agency, together with the Maui County Civil Defense Agency, will conduct the test to ensure that installation work on the siren has been completed properly.

Residents nearby may hear the siren sound six to eight times for 30-second to one-minute intervals during the identified timeframe.

Testing will include short blasts known as “burps.”

Residents can direct questions about this siren testing to the Maui County Civil Defense Agency at (808) 270-7285.


Hawaiʻi EMA encourages the public to make use of other supplemental methods of warning.
