Public Warning System sirens to sound on Feb 15 across Singapore

SINGAPORE: The Public Warning System sirens will sound the Important Message signal on Thursday, 15 February, at 12.05pm to commemorate Total Defence Day.

This is part of the Singapore Civil Defence Force's efforts to raise awareness about the three emergency signals and how the public should react when they hear each signal.

Once the public hears the minute-long signals, they can immediately tune in to any local FM radio station to listen to a special info-mercial broadcast and learn more about the three warning signals.

The Important Message signal is characterised by pulsating blasts, the Alarm signal by wailing blasts and the All Clear signal by continuous blasts.

The warning system is a network of sirens placed at strategic points throughout the island.

It is designed to warn the public of imminent threats that could endanger lives and property. – CNA/so
