Monthly Testing of Campus Siren Warning System
Posted October 22, 2008 | Atlanta, GA
To assure that Georgia Tech's Siren Warning System is in continuous operational condition, the Office of Emergency Preparedness will begin testing the system on the first Thursday of each month at 11 a.m. beginning November 6, 2008. All speaker stations will be tested simultaneously playing the following test message twice:
"Attention. Attention. This is a test of the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System. This is only a test. This is a test of the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System. This is only a test."
The Siren Warning System is comprised of seven speaker stations located across campus. Designed to notify people who are outdoors, the system complements the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System (GTENS) which delivers time-sensitive emergency messages in the form of e-mail, voice mail and text messages to the campus community.
