Statewide test alarm – NRW 2023
On 09 March 2023, the nationwide WarnTag will take place again at 11:00.
For this the sirens are triggered in all cities and municipalities.
The test alarm starts with the siren signal “All clear”.
After a 5-minute pause, the “WARNING” signal follows.
After another 5 minutes, the test alarm is terminated again with the “all clear” signal.
Simultaneous notifications are made via smartphone apps, radio announcements, and in some communities, loudspeaker announcements from warning vehicles.
This time also about the new Cell Broadcast process.
The aim of the test alarm is to test the infrastructure of the sirens and at the same time to raise awareness of the signals among the population.
The siren signal for alerting the fire department (2x interrupted 1-minute continuous tone) is dispensed with!
The fire department in Leichlingen is no longer alerted to operations by siren alarm.
