FAU to Test Emergency Alert System

BOCA RATON, FL (June 23, 2009)
– Florida Atlantic University is scheduled to test all components of the FAU Alert system the morning of Thursday, June 25.

At approximately 9:30 a.m., the emergency siren and PA system will be activated on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. During this test, a loud siren sound and a spoken message will be heard across campus, as well as in neighborhoods and business areas located near the Boca Raton campus. 

Additionally, FAU’s university-wide email, telephone alert, web alert, text messaging and emergency hotlines will be tested that afternoon.  FAU also will test its new toll-free emergency hotline phone number – 1-888-8FAU-OWL (8328-695) – which will allow callers to access all FAU emergency updates for each of its campuses via one phone number.  

The FAU Alert system is designed to play a key role in keeping FAU’s students, faculty, staff and campus visitors safe during emergency situations.
