Test of campus outdoor emergency notification system scheduled

June 22, 2018 9:06 a.m.

This blue light communication tower in front of Alexander Hall is part of a network of emergency communication equipment across the Princeton University campus.

Princeton University will conduct a test of the blue light tower outdoor notification system on campus at 10 a.m. Friday, June 22.

Testing of the individual towers will be done by broadcasting a tone followed by a voice message: “Attention please. This is a test of the Princeton University emergency notification system. This is only a test.”  The tone and voice message will repeat several times.

Members of the campus community should not take any action if they hear the test messages, which are transmitted on a test basis a few times each year.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Department of Public Safety at (609) 258-1000.
