Tsunami sirens test

By Staff reporter

The Papamoa community are concerned tsunami sirens will not be loud enough so are taking matters into their own hands.

The Papamoa Progressive Association have invited Wellington engineering company Tactical Tooling to test the sirens, which have been described as a modern version of a World War II air raid siren.

Association president Steve Morris said the test was in response to feedback about the council's current proposal not being loud enough, and concerns about ongoing maintenance costs.

The test will take place on Friday, October 19, at 9am in Papamoa and at 10.30am in Mount Maunganui.
