RAF Welford has a tanoy system known as "Giant Voice", which is designed to get a message across the base to all personnel if an emergency situation arose.
The Giant Voice has recently been upgraded, and we are planning to test out the new system on Wednesday 1 November at 12:00 midday. The test will last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour. During this time you may hear various tones and alerts that we are required to validate during the calibration phase of the new system install. These noises should cause no concern for alarm.
Once the new system is successfully tested, it is proposed that the National anthems of the UK and USA are played at the end of each working week. This is traditional across USAF bases, and national anthems are played at other USAF bases in the UK at the end of each working day. The weekly anthems will be played on a Thursday or Friday afternoon, at either 4:00pm or 5:00pm.
Please can you pass on this message to local residents, to prepare them both for the system testing on Wednesday and the ongoing playing of the national anthems. Thank you - RAF Welford
