Wairoa District Sirens

The siren that can often be heard both day and night in Wairoa is the NZ Fire Service Wairoa Volunteer Station siren alerting the volunteer firefighters to a call.

Occasionally the siren will rise and fall several times – this only means “multiple alarms” meaning that further resource is required.


The other siren heard is the AFFCO evacuation alarm test that typically sounds at 7:45am each Tuesday morning – this alarm could also be activated 24/7 in the event of an evacuation at the plant.


For more information please contact the Wairoa District Council.
