Tests of Indoor Emergency Alert System Scheduled

The following message was sent to the campus community by Communications and External Relations.


Wake Forest will soon test an upgraded fire alarm system that will bring seven new voice messages to emergency speakers in halls and lobbies in 28 academic, administrative and residential buildings.

Anyone in those buildings March 10-12 (during Spring Break) likely will hear test messages announcing an active shooter, an armed intruder, a tornado or other threatening weather. Testing will also include shelter in place, building evacuation and all clear messages.

No action is required by anyone who hears the messages. If an actual emergency were to occur on those days, the test messages would not be used.

Additional information about the testing and upgraded alarm system is available on Inside WFU.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
