During the Civil War Badalona suffered sixteen bombings, as a result of which 154 people died and 545 were wounded.

In order to inform and protect the citizens, a series of provisions were issued to be complied with in the event of a bombing. One was the amplified alarm signal to warn him of an imminent danger situation.

The Museum entered some time ago, this lacquer disc with the recording in Catalan and Spanish of the alarm alert for bombing, followed by the sound of a siren. Despite the poor state of conservation of the lacquer, thanks to the intervention of the engineer Enric Giné, from the Tasso sound laboratory, it has been possible to recover the engraving. The duration of the sound is almost two minutes.

The record was kept by a family who lived near the church of Sant Josep where this amplified record was broadcast with a speaker.
