Western Washington University will test its indoor and outdoor building enunciation system at 10 a.m. Monday, March 23.
A test voice message may sound several times on outdoor speakers located at the university’s tennis courts, the south campus oval at the Communications Facility, and at the Old Main lawn.
Amber fire alarm strobes also will flash in the main corridors of academic buildings and bathrooms.
The indoor and outdoor building enunciation is part of the Western Alert system, which notifies students, faculty and staff about important safety information.
Text, email and other elements of Western Alert will not be included in this test, according to a WWU press release. A full test of the Western Alert system is planned for April 16.
