Use of "Giant Voice" tanoy at RAF Fairford

21st June 2018

Dear Councillors,

You may be aware that RAF Fairford has a tanoy system (called the "Giant Voice") which is used to relay messages across the base during times of emergency.

To ensure the system is working correctly, the base is introducing a monthly test of the Giant Voice system. The first test will take place on Thursday 12th July, and will then take place routinely on the first Thursday of each month. The test will take place around 10:30 to 11:00am and will start with the words "Test Test Test" before going on to make a number of noises with different tones, and will finish with the words "test concluded'.

I sincerely hope that the monthly test will not be intrusive to local residents, but wanted to make you aware so that, if you can hear it, you can assure residents that there is no cause for alarm.

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me using the details below. Please note, however, that after today I will be on leave until Monday 9th July.

With best wishes,
