Huddersfield Syngenta siren test date and time confirmed

A Huddersfield company has announced they will be testing their emergency sirens at the start of next week.

Syngenta Huddersfield[1], a manufacturing centre that provides protection for plants in the agricultural trade announced on Twitter the sirens will blare on Tuesday, April 25. The tests will happen between 11am and 1pm to ensure their reliability in the event of an emergency.

In the two hours, sirens will sound at random intervals for a period of five minutes. The sirens are tested annually and the company has apologised for any inconvenience caused.

The full statement from Syngenta reads: “Siren testing will take place on Tuesday, April 25 11am to 1pm.

“During these hours, sirens will be sounded at random intervals for periods of 5 minutes.

“We test our sirens annually to ensure their reliability in the event of an emergency.

“Thank you for your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

They also added on their website: “If you can hear the siren but do not receive a letter from us, it is because sound can travel further than it is required to and your property is unlikely to be affected if our sirens are sounded outside of the test window.

“If you do receive one of the following letters from us, then please take time to understand what steps to take as part of our Community Safety Plan”
