Sydney CBD Emergency Warning System Is Being Tested TODAY
Police are advising us that the regular monthly test of the Sydney CBD Emergency Warning System is happening today at 12.15pm.
If you live, work or travel through the Sydney CBD you will need to be aware of the warning system, what it sounds like and what it is used for.
NSW Police say that the system is in line with similar warning systems overseas where monthly tests are conducted to educate and remind the public of the existence of the warning system, and to ensure the system works.
Today’s test will be conducted at selected sites within the Sydney CBD.
There are 98 speakers located throughout the CBD, as well as 13 variable messaging signs which are positioned at transport hubs in the city, all of which play a major role in the Sydney CBD Emergency Plan.
