Annual UW Indoor Alert Test COMING

UW Alert LogoThe UW’s Crisis Communication Team, in coordination with UWEM, will be conducting a brief test of the UW’s Indoor Alert System (IAS) on Thursday, September 5th at approximately 7:00 am.  This annual mandated activity will test the alarm systems in nearly 140 buildings and structures on the main Seattle campus.  Expect to hear brief loud noises, beeps and tones as well as see flashing strobe lights and test messages on LED reader boards throughout campus.    Building occupants will NOT be asked/required to leave the building.  For more information on the various notification tools and systems used by the UW in case of an emergency, click HERE.
