Outdoor siren warning (Hesa Fredrik)

The VMA is normally communicated via radio and television. However, in the event of grave events, Hesa Fredrik, the outdoor warning system for important messages, is also used. The outdoor warning system can be used for emergency alerts and air raid warnings in case of war in Sweden. The outdoor signals are tested every three months.
