Low-Volume Siren "Growl" Test

Saturday, December 16

The UNCW Office of Environmental Health & Safety plans to conduct a low-volume “growl” test of the Seahawk Warning Siren System between 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 16. Each siren will emit a very brief sound when tested. No action is required when the sirens sound during testing.

The Seahawk Warning Siren System is an outdoor emergency warning tool that the university uses in conjunction with a number of other resources during emergencies. EH&S periodically tests the siren system and other emergency communication tools as part of their routine maintenance.
