Reminder: Siren check in Latvia Monday morning

On Monday, May 20, from 10:00 to 10:08, alarm sirens will be activated for three minutes throughout the country to check the procedure for activating the national early warning system and its operation, as well as to detect damage, the State Fire and Rescue Service (VUGD) said.

For the first time, users of the "112 Latvija" app will also receive a notification about the alarm siren check.

For Ukrainian civilians in Latvia, mobile operators will send a text message about the planned test of the alarm sirens.

The VUGD reminds the public that there is no reason for citizens to worry and no further action is needed as this is a routine siren test.
