The University will conduct a campus-wide test of its emergency notification system beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, to ensure that members of the University community can receive information during a campus crisis or emergency.
The test will include the Princeton Telephone and E-mail Notification System (PTENS), the blue light tower outdoor notification system and a system of pop-up messages on computers logged into University networks. Testing of the individual towers will be done by broadcasting a tone followed by a voice message: "Attention please. This is a test of the Princeton University emergency notification system. This is only a test."
Members of the campus community should not take any action if they hear the test messages.
