Emergency sirens to be re-tested all over the island on Friday


The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) will conduct a re-test of the nineteen (19) All Hazards Alert Warning System (AHAWS) sirens on Friday, May 14, 2021, between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Residents, visitors, and motorists surrounding the AHAWS sirens can expect to hear pre-scripted voice messaging announcing the start and end of the test, and 10 seconds of the “Alert” siren tone.
