Siren testing has been completed
This article features an event that occurred in the past.
Testing of Western Carolina University’s emergency siren system has been completed and no other siren activations are planned.
Testing took place Tuesday and Wednesday, June 19-20, as part of the process of installing the system’s new computer and related software.
”I want to express my appreciation to the campus community for everyone’s cooperation during these test activations of a critical campus safety system. The tests turned out to be very successful,” said Tammi Hudson, campus emergency manager.
In the event of an actual emergency, campus officials rely on the siren system and other communication systems to disseminate emergency messages, including the WCU home page and emergency information page on the Web, campus email, the CatTracker/PIER notification system (texts, voice calls, email), Facebook, the WCU radio station, and area media outlets.
