Kauai residents and businesses are encouraged to sign up for Connect CTY, the county’s telephone-based emergency notification system.
A test of the system is scheduled for Nov. 15 at 11:45 a.m.
The Connect CTY notification system has been used on Kauai to send telephone messages for tsunami warnings, flash flood warnings, fire-related evacuations and water outages since May 2009.
“The test will help us to establish a baseline of what a successful CTY call should look like, and diagnose any problems ahead of time,” said Civil Defense Manager Theodore Daligdig III.
More than 17,800 residents and 6,100 businesses on Kauai are registered in the system.
To sign up, go to www.kauai.gov and click on the Connect CTY link. For help, call the Civil Defense Agency at 241-1800.
