Tsunami Warning Sirens Testing
1/16/2013  The City of Pacifica has installed outdoor tsunami warning sirens in the West Sharp Park and West Rockaway Beach areas. These sirens will be used to alert the public of a possible tsunami or other emergency. The warning sirens will be tested at a reduced volume simultaneously on the first Wednesday of every month at 10:00am and will last for 15 seconds. In an actual emergency, the alert tone will continue for 3-5 minutes. Should this occur, the public should remain calm, listen for possible voice announcements, tune into local radio/TV (i.e., KCBS 740AM/KQED 88.5FM) for instructions, avoid using the telephone and only call 911 for life-threatening emergencies. Citizens are encouraged to sign up for emergency alerts via cell phone/pager/email at www.smcalert.info.
