Ithaca College will conduct a regular test of its Outdoor Warning System sirens at noon on Tuesday, Sept. 18. A test of the Emergency Notification System—which uses voice, email, and texts to deliver emergency messages to members of the IC community—will also be conducted.

The college tests the system periodically to increase awareness of it among the campus community and to ensure that it is working properly.

Those on campus and 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.
