Four Puna Emergency Sirens to be Tested Thursday
On Thursday, the Hawai’i Emergency Management Agency, along with Hawai’i County Civil Defense, will conduct siren testing at four Big Island locations.
The tests will run between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at Kapoho Vacationland, Waa Waa, Hawaiian Beaches, and Hawaiian Paradise Park in Puna.
During the test periods, residents may hear the siren between six to eight times for 30-second to one-minute intervals. Short blasts, also known as “burps,” will also occur as part of the testing.
Officials and technicians will check that installation work on the siren has been completed correctly.
Anyone with questions about the test should call Civil Defense at 935-0031.
