Audible Alert Test Set For March 3
The university will conduct the first monthly test of the WolfAlert Audible Warning System at noon on Monday, March 3.Â The audible alert system includes several voiceâ€“ and toneâ€“enabled towers located throughout campus and could be used to warn campus of emergency situations.
The test of the system will include a tone and voice test and conclude with the â€œall clearâ€ tone.Â The test should take 5â€“10 minutes.
Environmental Health and Public Safety has arranged for test participants to be stationed at the exterior of buildings throughout campus to determine the extent to which the audible alerts can be heard.
The system will be tested on the first Monday of each month at noon.Â After this initial test, subsequent monthly tests will include only the â€œall clearâ€ tone.Â The voice and tone will be tested quarterly.
In certain emergency situations, a tone warning followed by voice instructions (such as â€œseek shelter and go to the home page for further instructionâ€) may be employed.Â An allâ€“clear tone would sound once the situation is stabilized.
