Mass Notification Systems Test


As part of its continued emphasis on campus safety, East Tennessee State University will test its mass notification systems on Thursday, March 17th @ 9:35 a.m. The system includes an outdoor warning siren system with four large speakers strategically placed on the main campus and on the Veterans Administration Campus; an emergency text messaging service called GoldAlert; an alert message on the ETSU homepage; and a public address system in select university buildings.
ETSU’s outdoor siren system will sound on Thursday, March 17th @ 9:35 a.m. Once it begins, GoldAlert, the ETSU alert website, and the PA system will be activated. The outdoor warning system will include a siren wail followed by the message, “Attention! This is a test of the ETSU Emergency Alert System. This is only a test.” During this process, no action on behalf of ETSU employees and students is required. These systems were installed in 2008 to communicate quickly with the entire campus in case of an emergency.
Questions about ETSU’s mass notification systems should be addressed to Dan O’Brien or 423-439-7743.
