Weekend testing of Queen's Emergency Notification System
Chimes and test messages will be broadcast tomorrow across campus, as final adjustments are made to the university’s new Emergency Notification System.
Pole-mounted outdoor speakers have been installed on top of Humphrey and Chernoff Halls on main campus and near John Orr Tower on west campus. In the event of an emergency, Campus Security can broadcast sirens and prerecorded messages across campus to faculty, staff and students.
Final testing of the system will include the broadcast of chimes and test messages to check for feedback and echoes between 11 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct 10.
