MTSU schedules campuswide tornado-siren testing Aug. 11

MTSU plans to test its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex Tuesday, Aug. 11, at 12:20 p.m.

This will be another brief, routine test of the university’s system. No safety actions will be required.

MTSU notifies the campus and surrounding neighborhoods before these tests each month. Tests are conducted on alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays to minimize distractions for classes and neighbors. The university will be between semesters for this month’s test, however, and no classes will be interrupted.
