On Thursday, January 14, the University will be testing all of its emergency notification systems at all Fordham campuses, including text, email, voice messaging, the University website, electronic campus bulletin boards, campus public address systems, and a WFUV announcement. The tests will be conducted during working hours, and will include visual and auditory notifications: we ask that you not be alarmed, but do take notice of how emergency messages are delivered, so that you’ll recognize an alert in the case of a real emergency.

We perform these tests at least twice every school year to ensure that the systems essential for your safety are working properly, and that both operators and the campus community are acquainted with their operation. Feel free to call the Department of Public Safety at (718) 817-2222 if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation.
