HIEMA NEWS RELEASE – SIREN ACTIVATION REMINDER

Posted on Sep 19, 2019 in Latest News

HONOLULU — For clarity, County Emergency Management / Civil Defense Agencies—which includes Police Dispatch Centers—are primarily responsible to activate the All-Hazard Outdoor Siren Warning System for events such as Tsunami’s, Hurricanes, Lava Eruption’s, Brush Fires, Hazardous Material Events, and/or Dam Breaches.

If the County is unable to activate their sirens, Hawaii Emergency Management Agency’s State Warning Point in Diamond Head acts as the backup.

Therefore, it was appropriate for the Honolulu Police Department to train on siren activation.
