MTSU plans tests of campus tornado warning system Oct. 13

MTSU plans to test its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 12:20 p.m.

This will be a brief, routine test of the system, and 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.

MTSU will be on fall break for this month’s test, however, and no classes will be interrupted.

Members of the campus community can prepare for emergency weather situations anytime by checking MTSU’s list of “safe places” at http://bit.ly/MTSUSafePlaces. You also can make note of the siren-testing schedule by visiting http://mtsunews.com/tornado-siren-testing. Bookmark both sites!

Remember that, in the event of a weather emergency, all students, faculty and staff automatically receive a Rave alert at their MTSU email addresses.
