The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Waimakariri District Council currently has 3 civil defence
sirens: one in Waikuku Beach, one in Woodend Beach, and one at Pines Beach. In
line with operating and testing procedures, civil defence sirens will be tested
twice each year on the first working day after daylight savings changeovers. The
first test is scheduled for Monday 25 September at 1pm.
During this exercise, residents will hear a loud siren sound,
followed by a clear message stating that “this is only a test.”
These tests are technical in nature to help verify that the
system is operating correctly; these alerts are not intended as a test for the
public. Council will continue to run tests for the local community through
simulated disaster exercises at least once every 3 years to familiarise local
communities with the siren system.
In an effort to reduce public inconvenience the sirens will
be tested at 1pm on the first working day after daylight savings changeovers,
when most people are likely to be at work and/or school. We appreciate your patience and
Notice of tests will be provided to affected communities on the
Council’s website, local newspapers, Facebook, Compass FM 104.9 and local
Residents are encouraged to spread the word regarding siren
tests throughout their local communities.
