Germany’s nationwide test of emergency warning system flops

People around Germany waited for sirens to sound at 11 a.m. Thursday, when the country was supposed to conduct its first nationwide test since 1990 of the emergency warning system.

But in many towns and cities, including Kaiserslautern, which is home to one of the largest overseas American military communities, they were met with silence — or at least no howling emergency sirens.

“Anyone else not get any sirens or warnings? K-town obviously didn’t play today,” Elaine Ebert wrote in a Facebook group for military spouses in the Kaiserslautern area.

No sirens sounded in Spangdahlem or Baumholder, either, other members of the group said.
