Just so you can annoy people tomorrow.

TURN UP THE VOLUME ON YOUR SPEAKERS (so your office mates can benefit as well).

Luckily it didn't wake up my toddler!

Well another siren test day goes by and I heard nothing.
We're obviously amongst those who are considered expendable.

Re: Nationwide siren test - this Wednesday 13:30

Me too. I opened the door and then I could hear a siren, about 3 Km away. I switched on the Radio, to SRF1, no information yet! Just boring music.

At 13:42, I just heard on SRF1, the sirens are a only a test.

Was it just me or this year's siren test fell a bit on the shorter side?

Re: Nationwide siren test - this Wednesday 13:30

How do you identify your nearest public shelters? In Singapore they were even built into individual apartments until recently!

Have you ever looked at your cellar and wondered why it needs a 2-foot-thick door?*

No, I live in a very old apartment building (300 years) and there's no such thing. But I see all sorts of unmarked doors around town leading underground, some of these are shelters I guess, but how to know?
