MTSU plans to test tornado sirens campuswide Sept. 9

MTSU plans to test its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 11:15 a.m., barring inclement weather conditions.

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

If thunderstorms are in the area as forecast around the time of Wednesday’s scheduled testing, however, the test will be canceled and conducted as usual next month.

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.
