Siren and Emergency Alert System Test

On the first working day of every month at 11:45 a.m., the Hawaiʻi State Civil Defense conducts a test of the statewide outdoor siren warning system. This test is a steady one-minute tone on all sirens. In the event of an actual emergency that may pose a threat to life and property, the siren signal would notify the public. When the siren is sounded in your area, tune to any local radio or television station for emergency information. Besides natural hazards, the Emergency Alert System could be used for terrorist incidents or acts of war.
