“Short Burst” Test of the Siren System

Saturday, June 23

The UNCW Office of Environmental Health & Safety plans to conduct a “short burst” test of the Seahawk Warning Siren System between 2 and 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 23. The sirens will sound individually for one second 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.
