Emergency siren warning system at RWU

During winter break, RWU will be installing an emergency siren warning system (ESWS) on campus. There will be four sirens placed around the campus to warn people of "life-threatening" situations, such as "lightning storms, chemical spills or a dangerous intruder."

If an emergency occurs, the Department of Public Safety will activates the system, which sends students a phone call/voice mail, text message and email on top of the sirens. When the sirens sound, everyone is advised to seek the nearest shelter.

Sound tests for the siren will be held during the day January 20-23. Additional tests will be announced on the ESWS webpage, which you can also visit for more information. To hear a test, click here.
