Did anyone hear the air raid siren???

At exactly, 11am this morning, as part of the exercise “PARMENION 2019”. A pilot activation of all the Civil Defense Alarm sirens sounded throughout the country.

In Zakynthos however, the siren of Civil Defense was not heard all over the island as it is operated manually !!!

According to information from the Police Department of Zakynthos.  During the last 12 years documents have been submitted to the Municipality for the supply and installation of a new electric motor. The siren located on the roof of OTE, has been plannd for the upgrade but so far no action has been taken !!!

So, did you hear the siren? I didn’t, and I expect that no one else did either!
