Warning day in Germany

Starting this year, the nationwide warning day will take place in Germany. From now on, this will happen each year on the second Thursday in September. This falls on September 10th at 11 a.m. in 2020. Warning days and “siren tests” such as this used to happen regularly, but lately only North Rhine-Westphalia had been doing them. On this warning day, the sirens will sound everywhere, loudspeaker trucks will send messages, radio, television and social media will send information and emergency apps such as the NINA app will send push messages. The aim of these measures is to familiarize people with the warning devices available and the warning procedures used, increasing their ability to protect themselves in the event of a disaster. Such warning alarms are given in the event of an emergency such as major fires, storms, floods, bomb threats, pollutant accidents or other acute dangerous situations. Further information on the warning day is available on the Internet at www.bundesweiter-warntag.de, information about the NINA warning app is available at www.bbk.bund.de/NINA
