College to test emergency warning system


The College of William and Mary will conduct a test of its emergency warning and mass notification system Thursday, Jan. 29, at 12:15 p.m. These systems are tested at the beginning of each semester to ensure that each member of the community is familiar with them.

The mass notification system is able to alert individuals through calls to land lines and cell phones, as well as by text messaging and e-mail.

Those not yet enrolled in the mass notification system can do so through the Banner service.
