My ‘first time’ was in Nieuwmarkt last September. Been in the Netherlands for a week now and the sirens went off while i was sipping coffee at home.
In the context of the RIVM guidelines in the context of the Corona virus (COVID- 19), we ask the participants: Extinction Rebellion Nederland is een grassroots beweging geïnspireerd op Extinction Rebellion UK.
, HI Sarah (my daughters name is Sarah)…..i can not tell you just how much l loved living in Haarlem…..every 2 years they take over the entire center and put flowers in a tapestry…..it is something to behold……and it is only a short ride via train to amsterdam, if you need something or want to go into town for something…..but Haarlem has all one could ever need or want……they even have their own anne frank type home……owned by corrie tenboom, she was the first clock maker in all of holland (maybe ever…) during WWII (i am a big WWII history nut) Corrie ran the underground.
Emergency services are on the road or already on site for a "suspicious situation on board an aircraft". The emergency number for police, fire, or ambulance in the Netherlands is 112. Honestly, if they sirens were to go off to signal a real emergency, I don’t think anyone would know what to do anyway. @Florian Ha ha, you’re welcome Florian. However in the geographical history of Europe tsunami’s have occurred extremely rare.
I ran outside to verify the level of chaos, and what did I see?
As always on the first Monday of every month, the air alarm will go off on September 7th at noon. After a quick phone call I discover that, indeed, this is completely normal, if and ONLY if it is precisely 12 noon on the first Monday of the month.
The first time I heard them, I had no idea what was happening and my neighbors were outside acting like they didn’t hear it.

Schiphol is the Netherlands' main international airport. Most likely just a big fire with possible toxic fumes has happened. Children playing in the park. Should I run around screaming?
they were protestant, the father was a preacher, as was the brother. I had been in the Netherlands for about a week and a half, it was a lovely summer day, birds in the sky, sun shining, and me enjoying my new city by sleeping in late and enjoying a cup of coffee.
Should I jump under the table? Emergencies in the Netherlands. New course alert! Here's what you need to know about the incident: Air Europa tweeted that the Schiphol Airport incident was a false alarm. The situation is causing flights at the D and E, even number gates to be directed to hardstands. The airline said an alert used for hijackings was activated by mistake. Something like “Oh man I just got to this city, can’t believe we’re doomed already!” but I assumed everything was ok when I saw people standing with their beers on the surrounding cafes.
I was riding my bike when I heard the air raid sirens.
Thanks for the post! “There is currently an emergency situation at Amsterdam-Schiphol airport. On Sunday 5 August 2018, a major earthquake occurred in the north of the Indonesian island of Lombok. Want to join us? Candy. The airport is Europe's third busiest, after London's Heathrow and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. Thank you.
If the sirens sound any other day, just go in doors and turn on the radio and wait.
thank you for your articles…….it is as though i have a friend writing letters to me……..
Those Lovely Dutch Monday Air Raid Sirens.
Scroll through the posts to see how the false alarm played out. The Dutch military police have confirmed that the passengers and crew involved in a "suspicious situation" at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol are safely off the plane. Fears of a hijacking at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol briefly brought the airport to a standstill today — before it emerged that an alarm had been activated by mistake. For example in February 1995 due to a flood warning at least 200,000 people were evacuated from the central river delta region just in case, even though the flood never happened. Thank you for writing this! Thank you! No further info on nature of emergency,” FlightRadar24 tweeted.
Now, I had heard that Amsterdam was a relaxed city, but this seemed like a bit TOO relaxed to me. Compare and book your KLM flights and view our special ticket deals and last minutes.

At 11:30 we gather at the Botermarkt. To answer Sarah’s question if something happens at 12:00 o’clock first Monday of the month the sirens will sound more then 1 minute which is the normal test period. Thanks! Hello…this is my first visit to Holland and the first Monday of the month. A spokesperson for the Marechaussee spoke of a "suspicious situation" on board an aircraft. The details of the situation are still unclear. But that begs the question, doesn’t it?
I grew up in Israel (where the sirens would only go off if it was a random drill or an actual rocket attack) and I hated the air siren drills when I lived in the Netherlands. (The latter, however, quickly gets an overload of visitors and shuts down.)
The first video looks typical of Maastricht, where I have lived. I had to ask them what was happening. I don’t know actually, but I suppose someone will shout into a microphone broadcasting: THIS IS NOT A TEST, ****ING PANIC NOW!
There are 8 to choose from in Transparent Language Online!
Since then I enjoy the test and I usually try to find any tourist listening to it with terror!
Others hand out flyers to passers-by. “Military police at the airport due to ongoing situation with an aircraft,” he wrote on Twitter.
At first couldn’t believe it! I was scared/confused.. now I know what to expect every month.
And if necessary, start an evacuation.
Had similar doubts about whether the “end” had come and whether I need to hide… :). It saved me some serious distress.

Two years ago they accidently pushed the button for all the sirens in Friesland to go off in stead of just the ‘affected’ area when there was a fire in a cheese factory and one of the big gas tanks on the premises threatened to blow sky high. I just stumbled upon googling for all this story of the air raid sirens . 06-08-2018 | 16:18. the entire family was killed but for Corrie, and were sent to Auschwicz…….such an awesome story…please go there and take the tour…..(if history does interest you) sorry i get so excited about holland…….nostalgic…..I lived in schalkwijk and had such a neat buurvrowe. sorry, i get carried away, so glad to talk to you Sarah!
Our live coverage has ended.
As far as I remember if sirens sounds more then 2minutes then we have problems ;D btw I googled your site because I haven’t heard sirens for maybe.. like half year already.
Air alarm = Climate alarm! Corona-measures: In Switzerland we’re also having these alarms a few times in a year, and there even are special alarm signals for everything, from floods to an atomic war. heheh. You really learn something about dutch & the Netherlands in this blog! Flocks of disrupted but otherwise unharmed birds circling overhead.
By Zoe Sottile, Fernando Alfonso III and Meg Wagner, CNN. If you have never been in the Netherlands on the first Monday of any given month, you have managed to miss out on a real treat.

The Dutch police force, also known as the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, is currently investigating a "situation" on board a plane at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. "False alarm": Air Europa said that suspicious activity reported at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport was a false alarm. Just heard this alarm that sounded so full of mystery and foreboding. (I live in the hague) It really confuses me, and I do worry sometimes what to do if it rings on a Tuesday or something…please reply! The noise that shook my walls and rattled my brain because I am lucky enough to live between three loudspeakers. Was the apocalypse upon me?
So you have this thing also in the Netherlands, I didn’t know it, thanks for this information.
For about one year there was a local determination that made impossible to test play it (it was only to be played in case of actual need), and during this period there was a bird nest in it, which had to be removed and the siren didn’t worked as expected when it was needed.
I didn’t know what it was…what to do..where to go.
