Orange Alert System Test Scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 19

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) will conduct a test of the Orange Alert Campus Crisis Alert Notification System on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 10:55 a.m. It will be a full test of the system, which includes notifications sent via email, text message and voice call. The test will also include the Orange Alert outdoor siren system on the University’s North and South campuses.

As a further refinement of the system, the Orange Alert test message will also be sent to the main Syracuse University and DPS Facebook and Twitter accounts, and will display on the University’s homepage and video monitors located in common areas in several buildings around campus.
