A siren will sound at 11 a.m. Wednesday morning throughout Israel to announce the beginning of the Home Front Command's emergency preparedness drill.

Residents are to go to the nearest shelter when the alarm is sounded and remain there for ten minutes. Hundreds of deaf citizens in the center of the country will also receive page warnings to special beepers to notify them of the sounding of the emergency siren, Channel 2 has reported.

In the event of a real emergency, a second siren will be sounded immediately after the first alarm.
