Peterson Air Force Base personnel and local population will hear an extended test of the Giant Voice system at noon July 13.

The Giant Voice will play the weather emergency tone, or a solid siren, for one minute. The tone is to test of the Giant Voice system, specifically the tornado warning notification, and ensure it is fully operational.

Giant Voice tests normally occur weekly on Fridays, using a shorter test.

The command post will alert all Peterson personnel through the ATHOC messaging system before the test occurs.

"I intend to focus on the development of all of our Airmen and at the end of the day ensure that everyone has more of what they need to accomplish the part of the mission. I won’t be naïve to say we can accomplish everything, but we should move the ball forward. I’m not about going backwards and I’m not about standing still," Chief Master Sgt. Jacob Simmons.

Is there a promotion for you next week? Fingers crossed!

We're glad she lived to tell the tale and proudly serve here at Peterson.
