Security Representative’s voice can be heard clearly; that the general alarm is audible and distinct; the fire strobe lights within respective areas are flashing; and hallway doors close if applicable).


NO VoIP Phone Test will be conducted this month.

This test is conducted to ensure this component of the Emergency Notification System is functioning.  A pre-recorded voice will be heard clearly. You will hear a short beep which will begin the messaging as follows:

“Attention! Attention! This is a test. I repeat, this is a test of the emergency communication system on campus, DO NOT TAKE ANY ACTION. This is only a test to familiarize the university community with the emergency notification system, thank you for your cooperation.”  Followed by “The test is now completed, thank you for your cooperation.”

To report any concerns regarding the tests, or for more information, please contact:

Thank you for your assistance and cooperation in these ongoing tests.
