Early Warning System Sirens can sound
to alert residents and visitors to tune to a local radio or
television station for more information about an emergency
within the County and possibly Diablo Canyon Power Plant.
Residents may also be alerted by sirens and loud speakers by
police and fire agencies in the case a siren fails to sound.
If you hear a
loud, steady siren for three to five minutes:
Go indoors and
tune to a local radio or television station. Stay tuned and
listen for important information and instructions.
If you are
able, go to your neighbors and make sure they are aware to
the emergency warning and related emergency actions.
Tune to Marine channel 16 for
emergency information if you are a sea.
Avoid using the telephone or cell
Do not call 9-1-1, unless you have a
life threatening emergency.
