AHAWS Siren Scheduled Test at Port Authority of Guam

AHAWS Siren Scheduled Test at Port Authority of Guam

The Port Authority of Guam (PAG), in coordination with the Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) will conduct a test of the All Hazards Alert Warning System (AHAWS) siren located at PAG on Friday, January 19 between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Residents and motorists surrounding Cabras Highway and Piti can expect to hear voiced pre-script messaging, wailing sirens and warning sounds as part of the test.

The siren at PAG is one of 15 located around the island. The test is one form of increasing capability of the AHAWS and is being conducted in support of the U.S Coast Guard’s annual inspection.

The test of the PAG AHAWS siren is separate than the pre-scheduled monthly test of all 15 AHAWS sirens. Future tests of the AHAWS sirens will typically fall on the first Tuesday of every month.
