Ithaca College will conduct a regular test of its Outdoor Warning System sirens at noon on Tuesday, February 23. The college tests the system periodically to increase awareness of it among the campus community and to ensure that it is working properly.

Local residents may hear a siren tone and loudspeaker message noting that this is just a test. There is no need to take any action in response.

A test of the IC Alert Emergency Notification System — which uses voice, email, and texts to deliver emergency messages to members of the Ithaca College community — will also be conducted at the same time.
