Full Summary:

Georgia Tech will test all of the emergency notification systems on Thursday, June 2, at 11 a.m.

Georgia Tech will test all of the emergency notification systems on Thursday, June 2, at 11 a.m. including:

  • NEW! We will be testing new alerts displayed on digital signage around campus including those in the Student Center and the Library.
  • Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System (GTENS) will send alerts via text, phone and email. If you’re not signed up for the GTENS text messaging and voicemail option, register here.
  • We will “blow the horns” for all seven speakers in the siren warning system, and then individually to make sure that they are all working correctly.
  • We will put a test message on our Facebook page and send out a test Tweet.

Although it will not directly affect campus operations, we will also test emergency phones, SatPhones and other emergency communications equipment.

During the emergency notification tests, faculty, staff and students are encouraged to think about where they would go and what they would do during an emergency situation. Remember, it’s important for you to stay aware of threatening weather and other emergency situations, and to take appropriate action when necessary. In other words, don’t completely rely on Georgia Tech’s emergency notification system to alert you – you are part of the solution too.
