Whiteman Air Force Base to test “giant voice” alert system Oct. 1-2

WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. --

Whiteman Air Force Base is scheduled to conduct a “giant voice” alert system upgrade test on Oct. 1, 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Oct. 2, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

A series of sounds and announcements will be heard during the test, which may be audible beyond the base perimeter. During the Oct. 1 test, a 30-minute long test at the speaker near the north ramp of our flightline (near Arnold gate entrance of installation) will verify that backup power can reliably power the speaker.

The 509th Bomb Wing Public Affairs team is available to assist those with questions or concerns by contacting 509bw.public.affairs@us.af.mil.
