San Francisco Briefly Freaks Out Over Unannounced Siren Test for the End of Sunday Streets 2012?

Looks as if we got our weekly Tuesday Noon Siren Test in early when some of San Francisco’s emergency sirens went off today at 3:45PM to … mark the end of Sunday Streets Chinatown?

Take a look:

The siren signified the end of Sunday Streets this week in Chinatown. We apologize for any concern.”

So more than just the one siren went off and that was the mistake?

Why should our City Family be horsing around with the emergency sirens in the first place?

So we should call them San Francisco’s Emergency/End of Sunday Streets sirens?

Anyway, it sounded like this:

Here’s an update from Tom Prete of Ocean Beach Bulletin:

“A siren from San Francisco’s Outdoor Public Warning System sounded at about 3:45 p.m. Sunday, but a City Twitter account stated that the siren was activated accidentally.”

And here comes Johnny-come-lately AlertSF.org:

“The sirens were activated citywide inadvertently this afternoon. There is no emergency in San Francisco.

Thank you,
Alert SF”
