NAS Whidbey Island Retrofitting Mass Notification Loudspeaker System

by WhidbeyLocal 26th October 2018

NAVAL AIR STATION WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. – The Navy is retrofitting its mass warning and notification loudspeaker system, known as Giant Voice, on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island through December, 2018.


Announcements may be heard emanating from NAS Whidbey Island during the day beginning November 2, 2018 and continuing into early December to ensure the Giant Voice is functioning properly.  These will include full-power testing of various types of emergency alerts, including voice announcements, sirens and audio recordings of various sounds such as tones and static noise.


The Navy intends to reduce impact where possible to neighboring communities while maintaining the necessary capability of a mass warning notification system and ensuring military and emergency management standards are met.

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

The Orchard Kitchen, which opened this past July, is the culmination of a vision that owners Vincent and Tyla Nattress created years ago when they were living in Napa Valley, California. They made a “Vision Board” that was a picture of how they wanted to live and how they wanted to make a living. The first need was to find a place in a beautiful setting with affordable land where they would have a farm to grow the crops for a unique farm-to-table experience.
