Siren and Public Address System Out of Service

October 18, 2010 — The University of Virginia’s outdoor siren and public address notification system is currently out of service. The system will be offline while the manufacturer and installer work to fix a problem. All other emergency notifications remain operational.  In an emergency, you can expect to receive notification from:

    •    University e-mail
    •    Cell phone text message; sign up through UVa Alerts
    •    LED displays in large classrooms
    •    LCD screens, where available
    •    Page, where available
    •    Internal public address systems, where available.

As always, the University home page will provide up-to-date information during an emergency.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Emergency Preparedness at
