Siren Test Today


The University will test the sirens and text messages
Tuesday, January 26 between noon and 1 PM.

No action is required since it's just a test. But you need


to know what to do in an actual emergency.

SIRENS SOUND ONLY IN A LIFE-THREATENING EMERGENCY


• An armed and dangerous person is on or near campus.
• A major chemical spill or hazard has been reported.
• A tornado has been sighted.

WHAT TO DO
• Go inside immediately.
• Close windows and doors.
• Stay until further notice.

In an emergency, sirens will also broadcast short voice messages. When the
threat is over, the sirens will sound again with a different tone to announce:
“All clear. Resume normal activities.”

If the sirens sound, you’ll also receive an emergency text message if you
signed up. These are just two ways UNC communicates in an emergency.
See alertcarolina.unc.edu for details.
