The IDF will hold a nation-wide drill with the recently introduced, more specific siren system for the first time from the 26th to the 28th of November between the hours of 9:05 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. each day.

The new siren system issues alerts displaying the names of municipalities and/or areas within municipalities. In the old system, general alerts were issued for wider regions with only the name of the region displayed.

The drill will take place in different areas each day and will test sirens, television alerts, internet alerts, radio alerts and the Home Front Command application.

“The Home Front Command sees importance in improving and streamlining the accessibility of alerts to civilians as a way to save lives and therefore calls on citizens to take an active part in the drill, to choose the alert method that is suitable for them, in addition to the siren, and to fill out a public survey that will be publicized on the Home Front Command website and social media,” said the IDF in a press release.

The drill will not require civilians to practice entering secure spaces.
