Warning sirens will go off in tests throughout Greece on Tuesday, October 3, as part of the nationwide civil defence exercise “Parmenion”, the Greek Police said on Monday.
At 11:00 am on Tuesday morning, the sirens will sound intermittently and at differing sound levels for 60 seconds, until 11:05 am, when an uninterrupted siren will sound for another 60 seconds. -via athensnewsagency
Just a Test
The first sound – the intermittent sound – is a warning for ‘air bombardment’ and ‘citizens should run to bunkers.’
The second sound – the uninterrupted sound – signals the end of the emergency.
There are more than 1,600 warning sirens in the cities and the border areas of Greece.
PS The test at 11:00 and 11:05 Tuesday morning was successful. No emergency situation emerged, of course.
