At approximately 9:50 a.m., the outdoor warning sirens on the Boca Raton, Jupiter and Harbor Branch campuses will be activated. During this test, a loud siren sound and a spoken message will be heard across the campuses as well as in nearby neighborhoods and business areas. FAU apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks its campus neighbors in advance for understanding the importance of this testing process both to the University and the community at large.
Additionally, FAU’s University-wide email, telephone alert, web alert,emergency hotlines and indoor notification system for Glades Park Towers, Heritage Park Towers, Indian River Towers, Parliament Hall, Innovation Village Apartments North, Innovation Village Apartments South, Algonquin and the Library will be tested throughout the same day. Tests of the FAU Alert System will occur three times a year on the last Thursdays of February, June and September. This month’s test occurs one day early due to the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah.
The FAU Alert System is designed to play a key role in keeping FAU’s students, faculty, staff and campus visitors safe during emergency situations. The University thanks everyone affected by these tests for showing patience and cooperation as they are carried out.
