The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense  will conduct tests of the All Hazards Alert Warning System (AHAWS) siren from the Port Authority of Guam (PAG) location on Tuesday, June 12, between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. and again on Friday, June 15 between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Residents, visitors and motorists surrounding the PAG AHAWS siren can expect to hear pre-scripted voice messaging announcing the start and end of the test, and the “Alert” tone, which can be heard here: http://www.whelen.com/mass/audio/Euro%20Tones%20Wav%20Files/Alert.wav.

The June 12 and June 15  tests of the PAG AHAWS siren are separate from the pre-scheduled monthly test of all 15 AHAWS sirens. Future tests of the AHAWS sirens will continue to be conducted on a monthly basis and will typically fall on the first Tuesday of each month.
