Cox on effectiveness of emergency sirens
Here is an excerpt:
"There’s a myth that these kind of things cause panic. I think the establishment of a siren has to be accompanied by education and awareness building so people know what the siren means; they know what to do when it sounds; and they know where to go if it’s around an evacuation from a tsunami. But I think, with that information, a siren is just a mechanism for alerting people and it’s one that has proven itself in multiple jurisdictions.”
