That is correct. Most people in the city heard it I think around 30 to 40 seconds before and were able to get out. It is a bit weird cuz I live in the suburbs, and we 1st felt it so went outside quick, and it was til we were outside that the nearby siren started with the earthquake alarm.

FYI, the last one that caused a ton of damage back in 2017, sirens system did not work out due to the epicentre being so close (around 120 km south to Mexico City), while most of the time epicentres occur close to the sea (over 400 km apart from Mexico City)
