Anyone in Germany next week may hear a lot of sirens all going off at once on Thursday the 10th at 11:00. Apparently there will be a nationwide test of the catastrophe warning system:

Just the alarms being sounded, or a full test?

It'll be interesting to hear how it goes on the day though. Will folk know what is happening, what they've to do?
For most people it's "Keep calm and carry on". I wish they had informed us at work though, as many of our clients disabilities will mean they could have flashbacks or triggered responses. We'll have to make sure they all know what is happening...

We'd a lorry run off the road as it passed the fire station as they sounded the three minute warning.

Caught completely off-guard when it went off.
