Campus testing loudspeaker system today


As part of UNL's efforts to deliver timely notification on campus about emergencies, a test of a Wide Area Notification system is scheduled for 4 p.m., Sept. 28.

The test is part of a national facilities conference and emergency planning session.

The test equipment will be set up near the City Utility Plant at 14th and W streets and directed to the west, toward Memorial Stadium. While the system has the ability to be focused in a particular direction, there may be some carryover or echoes from campus and neighborhood buildings.

A reminder message will be sent via UNL Alert approximately 30 minutes in advance of the test. In the event of severe weather or other real emergency condition, the test will be canceled.

Comments about the effectiveness and reach of the system can be e-mailed to UNL assistant police chief Fred Gardy at
