The Ministry of Rural and Maritime Development, Disaster Management Services today tested ten tsunami sirens which were installed between Suva and Lami corridor.
COMTECH Communication Technologies is the company that installed all the sirens.
Managing Director Mick Cornish says it took them six months to set up all the sirens.
Cornish says an automated voice will be played from the NDMO office if they see a need for a tsunami warning.
The coverage is about 1500 meters which is 1.5 kilometer concentric to the unit, so they position a total of eight in the peninsula, all of which are overlapping.
More tsunami sirens are expected to be installed in other coastal areas around the country.
