Outdoor Alert Horn Test Tuesday, October 20

Posted: October 19, 2009
The Emergency Response Planning Group and University Police will conduct a test of the college’s Outdoor Emergency Alert Horn at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 20.

People who are outdoors during the test will hear a series of three loud one-minute horn blasts emanating from the central heating plant. Please note: the horn is primarily intended to be audible at outdoor locations on campus—not inside buildings.

Approximately one hour before the horn sounds, at 12:30 p.m., the college will issue a campuswide test of the NY-Alert emergency communication system. At this time, all students, faculty, and staff who have registered with the service will be sent a test alert via text message, automated phone message, e-mail, or fax.

In a real emergency, the horn will sound for five full minutes. If a real emergency alert is signaled, immediately seek shelter and await further instructions communicated via NY-Alert, e-mail, www.buffalostate.edu, or direct instructions from University Police.

Thank you for your patience as we test these critical emergency notification systems.
