Institute to Test Full RPIAlert System May 1

All members of the campus community should note that the Institute will conduct a brief test of the full RPIAlert system -- including warning sirens -- at 2:55pm on Wednesday, May 1.

This will be a full test of the system, which will include the campus siren/loudspeaker, a text alert to cell/smart phones, an e-mail alert, and RPIAlert web page messaging -- which automatically flows to Concerto and the information channels on campus cable TV. This is a routine test to ensure that all components of the system are operating properly. The system is designed to be a critical information channel for all students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community during a real emergency.

As a reminder, all students, staff and faculty are encouraged to sign up for the optional RPIAlert texts for their cell phones and/or smart phones.
