Test of Orange Alert to be Conducted Friday, Feb. 16
Syracuse University will conduct a test of the Orange Alert Campus Crisis Alert Notification System on Friday, Feb. 16, at 9 a.m. It will be a full test of the personal e-mail, text message, cell voice and campus phone components of the system. The test will also include the Orange Alert outdoor siren system on SU’s North and South campuses. As a further refinement of the system, the Orange Alert test message will also be sent to the main SU Facebook and Twitter accounts, and will display on the University’s homepage and video monitors located in common areas in several buildings around campus.
The Orange Alert message will be sent to all SU students, faculty and staff, SUNY-ESF students and to SUNY-ESF faculty and staff who have signed up. Orange Alert will send a notice to all devices that are registered on the system. The sirens will be activated for a single 10-second blast at 9 a.m.
In order to review and/or modify your Orange Alert contact information, go to MySlice. Login using your personal NetID and password. Refer to the “ORANGE ALERT” link.
