Port Authority AHAWS Siren to be Tested March 22

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense  will conduct a test of the All Hazards Alert Warning System (AHAWS) siren remotely from the Port Authority of Guam (PAG) location tomorrow, March 22, 2019, between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.


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 March 22 test of the PAG AHAWS siren is separate from the pre-scheduled monthly test of all 17 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.
