Tamuning AHAWS Siren to be Tested October 29, 2018

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense will conduct a test of the All Hazards Alert Warning System (AHAWS) siren from the Tamuning Mayor’s Office location on Monday, October 29, 2018, between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.

The siren test from Tamuning Mayor’s Office is being conducted to assess operation.

Residents, visitors and motorists surrounding the Tamuning 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 October 29 test of the Tamuning 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.
