As with previous tests, Campus Incident Response Team (CIRT) members are requested to check their areas during the test to ensure that the system is functioning (ie. Security Representatives instructions can be heard clearly; the general alarm is audible and distinct; the fire strobe lights within respective areas are flashing; hallway doors close, if applicable).

This test is conducted to ensure that 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.”
