Police are advising the public that a test of the Sydney CBD Emergency Warning System will be conducted tomorrow (Friday 18 December 2015) at 12.15pm.
Members of the public who reside, work or travel through the Sydney CBD need to be aware of the warning system, what it sounds like and what it is used for.
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 focus on 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.
