ECSU will conduct a test of its new emergency alert system on January 27, 2009. The siren system will sound a series of tones from the Thomas-Jenkins Hall. Campus Police, the central source of information on the emergency alert system, will conduct the test. The system will be used in the event of campus fires, severe weather or acts of violence. The TV monitors in the Ridley Student Center will continue displaying slides from the Emergency Alert System poster. The same information will be distributed soon in the form of pocket cards and posters. Local government officials and emergency responders have been notified of the system and the upcoming test date. University officials have also held forums for students, staff, faculty and the community. The communication process is ongoing and additional promotional materials will soon be posted. Remember, the test date of the emergency alert system is January 27, 2009. To see a copy of the emergency alert flyer, students can visit the Division of Student Affairs in the Ridley University Center, Suite #114. Students may also see the flyer in the Office of Student Activities, #211 of the Ridley Student Center, 335-3654. Campus Police is the central source of information on the emergency alert system, 335-3555.
