The Early Warning Sirens (EWS) will be tested Saturday, January 6, 2024 at 12:00pm.
Residents should expect to hear a voice command stating:

  • “This is a test of the Paradise Early Warning Sirens.”
  • Followed by a 30-second-high low siren.
  • “This is a test of the Paradise Early Warning Sirens.”
  • Followed by the 30 second air raid siren sound.

Once the last voice command is played, that will conclude the EWS test. 

We appreciate the feedback from the community. There will be a new “Can You Hear Me?” Survey link available for the test.
