Tsunami Siren Testing on Sunday 30th September

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

On Sunday, 30th September, the tsunami sirens installed along the coastline between Brooklands and Taylors Mistake will be tested as part of a biannual testing exercise to coincide with daylight savings.

The sirens will sound at 11am for up to three minutes and can usually be heard a few blocks from the coastline.

It’s a good time for people to check whether you are in a tsunami evacuation zone, and to work out with your family on where to go if you needed to evacuate and how you will get there.
