Test of Orange Alert to Be Conducted Wednesday, Oct. 23
Syracuse University will conduct a test of the Orange Alert Campus Crisis Alert Notification System on Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. It will be a full test of the personal email, text message, cell voice and campus phone components of the system. The test will also include the Orange Alert outdoor siren system on the University’s North and South campuses.
As a further refinement of the system, the Orange Alert test message will also be sent to the main Syracuse University 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 Syracuse University students, faculty and staff, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (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 two minutes at 2 p.m.
