Hawaii to begin testing nuclear attack warning system Friday

(Worthy News) – Hawaiian officials implemented an alarm system to warn residents of a nuclear attack, the Hawaii Emergency Management System said Tuesday.

The statewide warning siren system will include an attack warning tone that is scheduled to begin testing Friday and will be added to the state’s monthly siren tests for tsunamis.

“On the first business day of every month, the state and the counties normally conduct a test of the attention alert signal, which is a steady tone,” HEM administrator Vern Miyagi said in a public service announcement for the system. “Starting Dec. 1, a second tone, the attack warning signal, a wailing tone, will be added. The attack warning signal advises everyone to take immediate shelter — get inside, stay inside, stay tuned.” [ Source: UPI (Read More…) ]
