Outdoor Warning System Test - Friday, June 1st noon-1:00pm

The City of Newport Beach will be testing its outdoor warning siren system on Friday, June 1, 2018 between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m.


The system's three sirens, located at the West Jetty View Park, Marina Park and West Newport Park, are regularly tested the first Friday of each month at a low decibel level. This test will be performed at a higher decibel level that used previously for the regular monthly testing.


The outdoor emergency warning system is in place to provide immediate notification during any type of disaster or hazard when immediate action from the public is necessary. If the sirens are heard in the community and it is not the first Friday of the month, community members should tune their radio to station 107.9 KWVE and await further instructions.


For inquiries about the outdoor warning system or disaster preparedness, please contact the City’s Disaster Services Coordinator Katie Eing at
