The Department of Disaster Management is informing the public that the National Siren System and National Emergency Broadcast System will be tested today, Friday, 23rd January at 2:00 pm.  The test is carried out on the fourth Friday of every month.

The public is not expected to react once the siren is sounded, as this is only a test. As a part of the test, the public is asked to tune into ZBVI, ZROD, ZKING, OR ZCCR for test messages from the Department of Disaster Management.  This test is being conducted to assess the automatic capabilities of the Emergency Alert System. 

The Department of Disaster Management is grateful to the residents of the BVI for their ongoing support and cooperation in this regard.
