Emergency Notification Systems Test, October 2016  

Emergency Notification System, Pirate AlertOn, Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 11:55 a.m. the Seton Hall main campus will be conducting a test of both the Emergency Siren System and the PirateAlert Emergency Notification System.

The Emergency Siren System is designed to alert the campus community of an emergency situation that requires them to seek shelter for safety.

There is no need to take shelter during this test. The siren test will consist of a siren wail tone preceded and followed by a voice announcement indicating that it is a test.

If the siren is activated in an actual emergency, you should:

  • Go indoors
  • Go into a room and lock or barricade the door
  • Quietly monitor the PirateAlert System and the SHU Website for further information and instructions

The siren test will be immediately followed by a test of the PirateAlert system. The test message will be sent to students, faculty, and staff via multiple communications methods including voice cell phone, text messaging, broadcast e-mail, and landline telephone.
