Salisbury University Police introduces its new outdoor siren alert on Thursday, March 13. At approximately 12:15 p.m. police will run the siren for a few minutes, which has a recorded voice and tone alert, to familiarize the campus with the sound. The siren is the latest addition to SU’s Emergency Alert System, which includes text and voice messaging, campus e-mail and campus TV channel 24. These aspects will be coordinated with the siren at that time. Registrants for text or voice messages will receive an alert, as will campus e-mail users. The process is estimated to take approximately 10 minutes.
University Police encourages the campus community to sign up to receive emergency cell phone alerts by visiting www.salisbury.edu/emergency/notification.html. Those wishing to participate Thursday should register no later than noon Tuesday, March 11. (If a problem arises with the text and voice messaging service, please e-mail ALERT@salisbury.edu. Registrants should be sure to include their name and registered phone number.) For more information about SU Emergency Preparedness, visit www.salisbury.edu/emergency.
