Test of Orange Alert Campus Crisis Alert Notification System Scheduled for Wednesday, April 20
The Department of Public Safety (DPS) will conduct a test of the Orange Alert Campus Crisis Alert Notification System on Wednesday, April 20, at 3:40 p.m. ET. It will be a full test of the system which includes notifications sent via email, text message and voice call. The test will also include the Orange Alert outdoor siren system on the University’s North and South campuses. The sirens will be activated for two minutes at 3:40 p.m.
In addition to email, text and voice messages, the Orange Alert test message will also be sent via push notification to the Rave Guardian app, the main Syracuse University and DPS 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 SUNY ESF faculty and staff who have signed up. Orange Alert will send a notice to all devices that are registered on the system.
“In the event of an emergency, it is critical that we can reach you. Please use this test as an opportunity to go into your MySlice account and verify that your contact information is up to date. This includes making sure that your cell phone is categorized as a mobile device, so that you receive our text messages,” says William Karnadi, director of emergency management and business continuity planning.
