Port Authority AHAWS Siren to be Tested August 10

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense will conduct a test of the All Hazards Alert Warning System (AHAWS) siren from the Port Authority of Guam (PAG) location today, August 10, between 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.
The siren test from PAG is being conducted to assess operation.
Residents, visitors and motorists surrounding the PAG AHAWS siren can expect to hear pre-scripted voice messaging announcing the start and end of the test, and the “Alert” tone, which can be heard here: http://www.whelen.com/mass/audio/Euro%20Tones%20Wav%20Files/Alert.wav.
The August 10  test of the PAG AHAWS siren is separate from the pre-scheduled monthly test of all 15 AHAWS sirens. Future tests of the AHAWS sirens will continue to be conducted on a monthly basis and will typically fall on the first Tuesday of each month.
