Sam Houston State University will begin monthly testing of a new siren/loud speaker system on campus next week.
Testing will be Monday and Tuesday (April 4 – 5) around 10:55 a.m. The tests will include a series of siren sounds and a public address announcement stating that the system is being tested. Future testing will be on the first Monday-Tuesday of each month, unless an actual emergency is underway, at which time voice messages with instructions specific to the event will accompany the alert tones.
The siren/loud speaker system is one of the security measures designed to notify the campus community of a dangerous situation. For more details, see the story on Today@Sam at http://www.shsu.edu/~pin_www/T@S/2011/sirentesting.html.
