WARNER ROBINS -- Anyone near Robins Air Force Base who hears the emergency siren going off over the next few days shouldn’t be alarmed.
The sirens likely are related to an emergency preparedness exercise. Those alarms begin with the words “exercise, exercise” stated over the loudspeaker system, followed by a scenario message, such as a tornado warning, and a siren sound. After the message, the words “exercise, exercise” are repeated.
Sirens sounded Thursday morning as the exercise began. More may be heard as the exercise continues through Feb. 3, said base spokeswoman Chrissy Miner.
The exercise is focused on emergency management, natural disaster response and major aircraft accident response.
