WFU to test messages in buildings

posted Mar 10, 2014, 3:37 AM by Mark Anderson

Wake Forest will conduct testing March 10-12 of an upgraded fire alarm system that will bring seven new voice messages to emergency speakers in halls and lobbies in 28 academic, administrative and residential buildings.

 

Anyone in those buildings likely will hear test messages announcing an active shooter, an armed intruder, a tornado or other threatening weather. Testing will also include shelter in place, building evacuation and all clear messages.

 

No action is required by anyone who hears the messages. If an actual emergency were to occur on those days, the test messages would not be used.

Update on campus travel conditions

posted Mar 4, 2014, 7:10 AM by Mark Anderson

As of 9 a.m. Tuesday, travel conditions are improving rapidly across campus, but caution is advised for all who are driving and walking. Parking lots and sidewalks were treated yesterday and are being treated this morning. But, they will remain partially covered with ice and slippery throughout the morning where ice melt could not be applied or still needs time to take full effect. 

Please use extreme caution when outside. Conditions are expected to improve through the morning and early afternoon as weather conditions improve and ice melt takes effect. If you encounter sidewalk or pedestrian areas that appear untreated, please contact Facilities and Campus Services at 336-758-4255 or hall@wfu.edu or via that office's webpage at: http://facilities.wfu.edu/request/
