“Giant Voice” Tanoy System at RAF Fairford

Dear All,

I contacted you some time ago to let you know that there would be a monthly test of the “Giant Voice” tanoy system at RAF Fairford. The Giant Voice is a mass alert notification system, able to send a message across the base to all personnel in the case of an emergency.

The system has recently been upgraded, and will now be tested on a weekly basis, taking place at 1200 noon every Wednesday. The test will start and end with the words “exercise, exercise, this is a test of the giant voice system”, with a solid tone between. The whole test will take around 30 seconds.

The test is unlikely to be heard in your towns and villages, unless the prevailing wind sends the noise in your direction! I just wanted to assure you that, if you hear anything on a Wednesday at noon, then this is nothing to be alarmed about. The weekly tests will start from Wednesday 6 November.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me using the details below.

Best wishes,

Jenny Collyer
