BU’s emergency notification system to be tested Friday, Nov. 20

All components of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s emergency notification system – e-mail, voice mail, text messages and campus sirens – will be tested on Friday, Nov. 20, at 2 p.m. The sirens, installed on Elwell Hall, McCormick Hall and on the upper campus, will alert the campus community when vital emergency information is available via e-mail, voice mail and text message.

All BU students and registered faculty and staff will receive a test e-mail message on Friday. Test voice mail and text messages also will be sent to those who opted to receive notification in these formats.

BU tests the emergency notification system once each semester.
