Outdoor alert system will be tested Tuesday
August 13th, 2013
On Tuesday, Aug. 13, Wake Forest will test one of the methods it uses to announce campus emergencies — the outdoor alert system.
The outdoor alert system is part of Wake Alert, the University’s emergency notification program, which provides information and advisories via a number of communication channels.
At 6 p.m., Wake Forest will test the outdoor alert system. During testing of the outdoor system, speakers at four locations will broadcast an electronic tone followed by an announcement stating that the system is being tested. The outdoor system features a siren, too, but it will not be activated.
The outdoor system’s four speakers will broadcast the tone and message from the following locations: Davis Field beside Wake Forest Road, an area behind Kentner Stadium near radio station WFDD, an area along Wingate Road near the offices and shops of Facilities and Campus Services, and an area between University Corporate Center and BB&T Field.
