ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If an emergency happened on the campus of Albany State's campus, how would officials get the word out to students? The University tested its new outdoor siren system around 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.
It was recently installed on top of the library. In emergencies, the siren will alert students and staff to severe weather, or even to a dangerous suspect on campus. Take it from us, the siren was loud. It can be heard for miles.
In addition to the siren, students and staff can also be notified of emergencies on their cell phones and computers.
