W&M to test emergency siren on Sept. 2

The College of William and Mary will test its emergency alert system Wednesday Sept. 2, 2009. The drill, which will be conducted at 12:15 p.m., will include both a test of the campus-wide siren system and the mass notification messaging system.

The 120-decibel siren system is stationed above both the Integrated Science Center and the William and Mary Law School. In the event of a real emergency, people in the community who hear the siren may check for information and instructions at www.wm.edu.
