Warning sirens to be put to the test
Wed, 10 Oct 2012 9:37a.m.
The Papamoa Progressive Association is planning to test a series of loud warning sirens along the Bay of Plenty coast next week.
The sirens will be tested at two sites in Papamoa and Mt Maunganui between 9am and 10.30am on Friday, October 19.
Steve Morris, Chair of the Papamoa Progressive Association, said the sirens will be easily audible across a large area and residents should be warned.
If the tests are successful, the sirens could be installed in up to 60 locations to warn of natural disaster events such as tsunamis.
