September 2016 Siren Testing CANCELLED

HONOLULU 8/29/16 – After consultation with the four counties, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency will not conduct siren testing on Thursday, September 1st.

The combination of the World Conservation Congress with delegates from 170 countries, a visit by President Barak Obama and the approach of two powerful hurricanes has emergency management officials concerned the siren testing may result in public confusion.

Hawaii EMA Administrator, Vern Miyagi says, “The less confusion the better.”

Siren testing will resume in October. Any siren sounding before then should be taken seriously and the public should tune in to television and radio news reports.
