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.
