Every Wednesday at noon, the outdoor mass notification system (siren system) will play several chimes. This automatic test is to ensure the system is functioning properly.

The speakers for the siren system are located on roofs of Lenhardt Hall, Ganser Library, the Prince Street parking garage and by Pucillo Gymnasium, facing the softball field. The outdoor siren system is part of the University’s emergency notification system to warn students, faculty, staff and visitors of an emergency on campus. In a real emergency, people outdoors will hear an actual voice message instructing them of the emergency and what they should do to protect themselves.

Other forms of emergency systems include the MU Alert (text/email) system, Millersville’s homepage information system and the reverse 9-1-1 phone system.

For more information on these emergency systems, contact Patrick Weidinger, director of safety and environmental health, at 717-872-3715 or Patrick.Weidinger@millersville.edu.
