In this day and age of modern technology, is it really necessary to sound the "air raid" siren 15 times at 2am to get the fire brigade out of bed? Surely they heard you the first time!

Um, "Air Raid", experienced that in Raglan back in May. Frightened the Sh*t out the both of us, as didn't know what it was for.

I still don't know the difference between the Fire Brigade siren and the tsunami siren, needless to say neither get me out of bed ...
