WILLIAMSBURG — William & Mary announced that they will be testing its emergency notification system Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2021, at 12:15 p.m.

The William & Mary emergency system features a 120-decibel siren system stationed above the Integrated Science Center, William & Mary Law School on South Henry Street, and the School of Education building off Monticello Avenue.

The emergency system also utilizes a digital platform, known as Rave, to notify students and faculty of potential campus emergencies.

This will be the first time the emergency notification system has been tested in the current 2021 fall semester.

William & Mary also provide a free mobile app, for IOS and Android, that provides a variety of campus information and services to the university community. If a campus emergency ever occurred, this mobile app would provide additional information.

The members of the local university community can follow emergency news through the William & Mary News Facebook and Twitter pages.

In the event of a real emergency, local members of the community who happen to hear the siren may check William & Mary’s official website for more information and instructions.
