Dec 1 Monthly Siren Test

November 30, 2017 4:39 PM

Aloha, Mid-Pacific Preschool and Elementary families:

Please be aware that tomorrow Friday, December 1 during the regular monthly siren test, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, formerly Oahu Civil Defense, will conduct a test of an Attack Warning Signal, the first test of its kind since roughly 1980. At 11:45 a.m., 50 seconds of the usual steady Attention Alert Signal for hurricanes or tsunamis will be followed by 50 seconds of the wavering attack warning.

Mid-Pacific preschool and elementary school students will be made aware of the test by their teachers. All classes will go on as scheduled.
