Whangarei District Council

Northland’s network of tsunami sirens in coastal communities will be tested at 12 midday on Easter Sunday, 4 April 2021. Please note the time – this is later than usual to allow for morning church services.

The sirens will sound twice at 12:00pm for 10 minutes and at 12:30pm for 30 seconds.

The twice yearly checks are carried out at the beginning and end of daylight saving.

A message will also be sent to users of the free Red Cross Hazard app.
