City and state officials will be conducting a siren test from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday near the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and Waimanalo.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, along with the city Department of Emergency Management, will conduct siren tests at Aolewa Place and Lagoon drive near the airport and at Waimanalo Beach Park. The Waimanalo siren test is a retest.

The sirens, installed as part of the Statewide Siren Modernization Project, are being updated, while some new sirens are being installed across the state in the next few months.

Residents nearby may hear the siren sound six to eight times for 30-second to 3-minute intervals during the test. Testing will include short blasts known as “burps.” During the tests, Emergency Management officials and technicians will be checking the functionality of the siren.

Residents with concerns or reports of siren malfunctions may contact the Honolulu Department of Emergency Management at 723-8960.
