Daily Siren Test

 

The University’s Siren/PA System has been updated.  We are happy to report this improved system is fully operational.  One of the features of the update allows for daily testing of the system.   The purpose of daily testing is to assure the main console and speakers are working appropriately.  This daily test will take place at 2 pm, consisting of a 5-6 second bell tone that in no way resembles the siren alert used for a real event and one we feel will not be obtrusive to our community.   Please contact the Office of Emergency Preparedness at uvaoep@virginia.edu with questions.
