UNCW to test sirens Monday

READ MORE:

UNCW will conduct a full volume test of the Seahawk Warning Siren System Monday, July 12 at noon. The test will last approximately 4 to 5 minutes. No action is required when the siren sounds at this time.

In June, three additional sirens were added to create 100 percent outdoor siren coverage on campus, including Isaac Bear Early College High School and university facilities on St. James Drive. The new sirens are located adjacent to Seahawk Landing, Friday Annex and Boseman Field. Depending on weather conditions, the siren sound may be carried for several miles beyond campus.

The Seahawk Warning Siren System is an outdoor emergency warning tool and may not be audible inside all university buildings. If the siren sounds in an actual emergency, immediately take shelter indoors, seek further information and wait for an all-clear notification.

For more information about the Seahawk Warning Siren System, contact UNCW Environmental Health & Safety at 910-962-3057 or visit www.uncw.edu/siren.
