Sirens in the country work fine – Liechtenstein
VADUZ – The annual siren test was carried out in Liechtenstein and throughout Switzerland on Wednesday. No deficiencies were found in the sirens in Liechtenstein.
In this year’s siren test, all tested stationary sirens in the country would have worked perfectly. As reported by the Office for Civil Protection (ABS) on Wednesday afternoon, these were also checked by manual release with regard to a possible failure of the communication infrastructure. This test also went perfectly.
In Liechtenstein and Switzerland there are around 5,000 stationary sirens to protect the population. According to ABS, these are all connected to a uniform control system.
In addition, the alarm could also be tested again via the digital Alertswiss channels. “Liechtenstein and all cantons of Switzerland have successfully disseminated the relevant information,” it said. With the Alertswiss services, the population can prepare better for disasters and emergencies and instructions on how to behave can be transmitted quickly and directly by the responsible authorities.
