Monthly siren test on Wednesday

The Maui News

The monthly test of the all-hazard Statewide Outdoor Warning Siren System is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Wednesday.

It is coordinated with the test of the Live Audio Broadcast segment of the Emergency Alert System at the same time.

During the monthly test, all Statewide Outdoor Warning Sirens will sound a one-minute Attention Alert Signal (steady tone). The all-hazard Outdoor Siren Warning System for Public Safety is one part of Hawaii’s Statewide Alert & Warning System used to notify the public during emergencies. If the siren tone is heard in circumstances other than a test, follow emergency information and instructions provided by official government channels. This may be in the form of a local radio, television station broadcast, and/or a cellular Wireless Emergency Alert.

Emergency management and disaster preparedness information is located at the front section of telephone directories in all counties. For the latest information from the HI-EMA, or to sign up for county alerts visit ready.hawaii.gov.   

The public may contact emergency management and county civil defense agencies to report siren operation issues. In Maui County, call (808) 270-7285.
