New warning system test is Tuesday

Testing of the university’s new outdoor emergency notification system is Tuesday, Feb. 11. 

Testing will be between 10 a.m. and noon. Voice messages and the siren audio may be generated to adjust the system’s sound levels for optimal campus performance. 

The new system will be louder and provide more coverage for the campus than the previous system. The system will also be heard in some areas of Carbondale adjacent to the campus.
