On, Thursday, August 17, the University is testing all of its emergency notification systems at all Fordham campuses, including text, email, the University website, electronic campus bulletin boards, campus public address systems, and a WFUV announcement. The tests will be conducted between 11 a.m. and noon, and will include visual and auditory notifications: we ask that you not be alarmed, but do take notice of how such 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 the staff responsible for sending emergency messages and the members of 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.
