Emergency sirens to sound today

Emergency sirens will sound today, Sept. 21, between noon and 1 p.m. as part of a test of Alert Carolina, a safety awareness campaign.

“The sirens are the best way the University has to inform people quickly about a life-threatening emergency,” said Chief Jeff McCracken, director of public safety. “It’s important to conduct regular tests so students, faculty, staff and community members know what the sirens sound like and what they are supposed to do in a real event.”
