Guam - Senator Judi Guthertz will be holding a roundtable discussion next week with the Office of Civil Defense and Guam Homeland Security. Guthertz says the meeting was called after it was revealed that the agency has in its possession sirens that could have been used during the recent tsunami warning stemmed from an earthquake in Chile.

She said, "I want to find what has really happened here with the monies that were used for this, how is it paid for, is the system in their possession, where is it being housed and why hasn't it been installed, and how are we to be ensure the protection of the people of Guam should we receive another tsunami warning."

A $2,000,000 siren system sits in a warehouse because of an unresolved protest.  Meanwhile, the roundtable is scheduled for next Thursday in the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
