Don’t be alarmed if you hear a warning siren in Waipahu this week.
The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency and the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Emergency Management will conduct a siren test on Wednesday, Feb. 14.
The test will occur between 1 and 4 p.m. at Village Park (Hoaeae Community Park).
The siren was installed as part of the Statewide Siren Modernization Project.
Residents nearby may hear the siren sound six to eight times for 30-second to 3-minute intervals during the identified timeframe. Testing will include short blasts known as “burps.”
During the tests, Emergency Management Officials and Technicians will be checking the functionality of the siren.
