Nationwide Emergency Siren and Notification Drill, April 18-21

Nationwide Emergency Siren and Notification Drill

The Romanian Department for Emergency Situations will test Emergency Notification/Public Announcement Systems via emplaced loud speakers from April 18 and April 21 between 10AM and 3PM in Bucharest and in all counties across Romania.  The tests will consist of loud warning sounds (5 different tones) for a duration of 16 seconds each followed by an announcement.  All emergency messages will begin and end with the word “EXERCITIU” to indicate that’s it is only a drill.  The test is designed to assess the effectiveness of public warning tools.

Should you or your family members hear the warning tones or public announcements please don’t be alarmed as it is part of a nationwide drill.
