Test of New Emergency Alert Horn: April 2

Posted: March 31, 2009
The Emergency Response Planning Group and University Police will conduct a test of the college’s new emergency alert horn on Thursday, April 2, at 1:00 p.m.

Most people on or near campus will hear a series of six very loud 10-second horn blasts over a two-minute period, emanating from the central heating plant.

Thirty minutes before the horn blasts, 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 receive a test alert via text message, automated phone message, e-mail, or fax.

In a real emergency, the horn will sound three times in full one-minute blasts, separated by 15-second silent intervals. In such an emergency, immediately seek shelter and wait for further instructions communicated via NY-Alert, e-mail, www.buffalostate.edu, or verbal instructions from a university police officer.

Faculty and staff may register for NY-Alert through the SUNY employee portal. Students can register through BANNER.
