Bulgaria's emergency siren system will be tested Monday in ten Bulgarian cities, the Interior Ministry announced.
The cities are Sofia, Burgas, Varna, Kardzhali, Montana, Pazardzhik, Pleven, Plovdiv, Ruse and Smolyan.
The test will be held at 1:00 pm. It is carried out under the Order for Early Warnings and Announcement of Disasters. The goal is to make a check of the technical state of the sirens and for the citizens to be aware and able to recognize their sound.
The sirens will be accompanied by information in Bulgarian. There will be also a signal marking the end of the emergency alert.
