William & Mary will test its emergency notification system Wednesday.
The drill, which will be conducted at 12:15 p.m., will include both a test of the campus-wide siren system and the mass notification messaging system, according to a news release from the college.
The 120-decibel siren system and computer AlertUs notifications will be tested on campus. Speakers for the siren system are stationed above the Integrated Science Center, William & Mary Law School on South Henry Street and the School of Education building off Monticello Avenue. In the event of a real emergency, people in the community who hear the siren may check for information and instructions at www.wm.edu.
Community members can also follow emergency news through the William & Mary News Facebook and Twitter pages as well as the free W&M mobile app.
