Notification of siren testing 1996

Until quite recently one of the ways the people of Canvey Island could be warned about the risk of flooding would've been by sounding the sirens.

These were strategically placed around the Island. They were sounded briefly once a month. Once a year in the summer they were sounded fully for several minutes.

The sirens have now been removed because the warnings can now be given via text, email and phone alerts.
