Island-Wide Sounding of the Public Warning System (PWS) Sirens on 15 September 2022 at 6:20 pm
13 September 2022
SCDF will be sounding the “Important Message” signal through the island-wide network of Public Warning System (PWS) sirens on Thursday, 15 September 2022
at 6.20 pm. Do not be alarmed by the minute-long sounding exercise.
The signal will also sound for all smartphones that have the SGSecure Mobile
App downloaded and are not on silent or vibration mode. The signal will stop once the
message is acknowledged or cease after 20 seconds. This will be followed by a brief
text on the PWS sounding.
When you hear the “Important Message” signal, tune in immediately to any local
radio station or free-to-air Mediacorp TV channel for a brief message on the PWS. If
you miss the message, visit go.gov.sg/pws to know more about the PWS signals.
Held annually, the sounding and broadcast message are part of SCDF’s
continuous efforts to familiarise the public with the PWS signals and to raise
awareness on how the public should react upon hearing the signal.
