NCCU will conduct its first test of the system from noon to 3 p.m. on Thursday, October 15. When the system is tested, there will be a siren followed by a voice message announcing the test. People will be advised to resume their normal activities after the test is complete.
The sirens will be used to alert the campus and about immediate life-threatening emergencies such as an armed and dangerous person on campus, a major chemical or biological hazard, or a tornado sighting.
The sirens are mounted on three, 40-foot poles. They are located at the north side of Benjamin Ruffin Residence Hall near the corner of Lawson and Concord streets; the south side of Alfonso Elder Student Union on Nelson Street by the loading dock driveway; and east of the track by New Residence II and the Leroy T. Walker Complex.
