Live testing Early Warning System

Cairns Regional Council advises live testing of nine outdoor early warning stations installed as part of Council’s Copperlode Falls Dam Emergency Action Plan will occur tomorrow, Wednesday 9 October between 10am and 2pm.

Nine outdoor warning stations have been installed throughout the Redlynch Valley from Crystal Cascades to Brinsmead, as one component of the Copperlode Falls Dam Emergency Action Plan Early Warning System.

The sirens have two elements: a voice notification and a siren tone.

During the testing, each outdoor warning station will be sounded individually (twice) starting with the station located at Crystal Cascades, working back toward Brinsmead until all stations have been individually tested. The test at each station will last around 40 seconds.

Once each station is individually tested, all stations will be tested together (twice).
