About Nagoya City Disaster Prevention Speaker Siren Test On May 26 (Sun)

 On May 26 (Sunday) in the morning, there will be a comprehensive disaster prevention speaker siren test conducted throughout most of the city.

The alarm sirens will sound in certain the following wards:

   Nakamura Ward
   Mizuho Ward
   Atsuta Ward
   Nakagawa Ward
   Minato Ward
   Minami Ward
   Meito Ward
   Tempaku Ward.
 
The sirens will sound between 8:10 and 9:40 in each ward at set times for a period of around 3 minutes.
 
The sirens are used to quickly inform city residents in the event that an evacuation advisory has been issued.

Furthermore, the siren pattern will “sound for 3 seconds, and then pause for 2 seconds,” for 3 minutes.
