Do you hear sirens in the main library?

Posted on: Mar 27, 2009 @ 9:12:05 am

No, you haven't been studying so hard that you are beginning to hear things. Those really are sirens.

UCF will conduct tests of its new outdoor emergency siren system Thursday, March 26,through Monday, March 30. The sirens are part of UCF's ongoing preparations for a potential campus emergency and are one of several communications tools the university would use to provide critical information to students, faculty,staff and the public.

The sirens are located on parking garages B, D and H and on the Facilities & Safety complex on Libra Drive.

A variety of siren tests will be conducted from 1 to 6 p.m. Thursday, at 1 p.m. Friday, from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday. The tests will include a mix of tone sounds and "test" voice instructions. The siren tests may be audible inside some campus buildings and in some neighborhoods close to campus.

So it's only a test.
