HONOLULU (AP) - State officials are testing emergency sirens on Kauai this week.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency says testing will be conducted Wednesday through Friday.

The agency says residents may hear sirens sound for 30-second to one-minute intervals during the identified timeframe. Testing will include checks of the public address system and short blasts known as “burps.”

Wednesday’s testing will be at Vidinha Stadium and the old Lihue Police Station as well as Isenberg Field and Lydgate Park.

The following day sirens will be tested at Anini Pavillion and Aliomanu Estates followed by Kapaa High School and Shipwreck Beach Park.

Kauai Veterans Cemetery sirens will be tested on Friday.

The agency was formerly known as State Civil Defense.
