  • Civil Protection Warning System Test Today

Today at 11 am the Kanagawa prefectural government will be testing the J-Alert civil protection warning system, which might be used in case of threats to public safety. Public loudspeakers will announce the test and sirens will be sounded. People with emergency warning system apps on their phones may also receive an alert at this time. Again, this is just a test of the system.

We will not be practicing any drill at this time. But for your reference, should you hear the sirens in the future the advice is as follows:

If you are outside, seek immediate shelter in the nearest building or underground facility.
If indoors, move away from windows and exterior walls. Assume earthquake safety positions.

Again, we will not be practicing any drill today; please go directly to your period 3 class after the morning break. (Mr Pomeroy)
