ASU To Conduct Full Test of Its Campus Warning System on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 11:55 a.m.

appstate_alert_300Jan. 13, 2014. Appalachian State University will conduct a full test of its campus warning system – including siren, email and text messaging – Wed., Jan. 15, at 11:55 a.m.

The siren test will consist of a 75-second discontinuous air horn tone followed by a pre-recorded voice message that says, “This is a test. This is a test of the emergency warning system. This is only a test.”

The all-clear activation will consist of a 20-second alert tone followed by a pre-recorded voice message.


When the university issues an emergency alert in response to a hazard, threat or actual incident, everyone must know what the emergency conditions mean and basic emergency responses.
