Re: Nationwide siren test - this Wednesday 13:30

negative alarm test is trigger at the federal headquarters and all the sirens must sound

what you heard was probably a small test local of a certain problematic siren which did not sound last time and they don't want now to have to repeat the test again in 2 months...

Re: Nationwide siren test - this Wednesday 13:30

Still haven't heard anything. Was it supposed to be all of the Kanton, or just the city centre?

The frogs didn't like it at all. The moment it started they started to complain loudly.

Whole confederation.

I guess some parts of the country are expendable.

New frog moving in on their territory - of course they're going to complain.

Didn't hear a thing here - but that's normal. Siren must point in the wrong direction for us. Plus I know I'm going deaf as well.

I am not sure if the water alarm test went properly because I did not hear any water alarm in the Zurich Center City...

True, they didn't do the water-alarm around Winterthur either. Maybe that one went well the first time?

We test to find faults. And we found faults.

Some bug in the system prevented the remote trigger of the some of the sirens: https://www.babs.admin.ch/content/ba...tml/69745.html

The bug was found. Once fixed, there will be a new test during this year:
https://www.babs.admin.ch/de/home.de...tml/69943.html

Stay tuned for more information.
