Kent State to Test Mass Notification System
The safety of our community is our highest priority. To ensure our university mass notification system is working properly and effectively, the University’s Department of Public Safety will conduct a test of the Kent Campus telephone and building speaker components on Sun., Dec. 22, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Several pre-recorded messages will be played during this test (Test, Active Threat, Tornado, All Clear). Once the testing begins, it should last no longer than 30 minutes.
This is only a test of the mass notification systems, and no shelter-in-place activities are required.
If you are on the Kent Campus during this time, the Department of Public Safety requests that you send feedback regarding the effectiveness of the test. Please reply via email to POLICE_SERVICES@kent.edu. The messages will have alert tones followed by pre-recorded messages. The messages will loop, so you may hear each one twice.
Again, please be aware that the university is conducting a test of the telephone and building speaker components of the mass notification system on the Kent Campus on Sun., Dec. 22, from – 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. This is only a test. Learn more.
