Re-test of emergency alarm successful
September 28, 2007
A second test of the emergency alert siren Wednesday was successful. During the test, the 120-decibel alarm sounded across campus for one minute.
p. “We are very pleased that the siren system worked as expected this morning,” Vice President for Student Affairs Sam Sadler told W&M News. “It is important for this campus and members of the local community become familiar with this sound and that they are educated about what to do in the event of an emergency at the College.”
p. The administration decided not to test the messaging system, in which students and others are contacted by phone and e-mail with information, because that part of the system worked both previous times.
