New, upgraded Hilo sirens to be tested Friday
The State of Hawaii Emergency Management Agency will be conducting a test of specific new and upgraded Outdoor Warning Sirens in and near the Hilo area tomorrow, May 12.
This test will sound various alert tones that will be audible in the surrounding areas.
This is only a test. The sirens scheduled for tomorrow’s tests are:
- Baker Avenue
- Carvalho Park
- Kaumana Elementary School
- The Pepeekeo Siren
If this were an actual emergency, rather than a test, the siren sounding in and near the Hilo area would have been followed by official information, news or instructions.
Should you have any questions regarding this scheduled siren testing, please contact Civil Defense at 808-935-0031.
