Campus emergency siren test conducted June 5

BOONE—Appalachian State University will conduct a test of its campus siren warning system Wednesday, June 5, at 11:55 a.m.

Examples of the tones that are used in an emergency or during tests can be heard online at http://em.emergency.appstate.edu/siren-warning-system. Appalachian uses the “hi/low” tone for emergencies; “discontinuous air horn” for tests of the system; the “alert” tone for all-clear signal; and the “wail” tone for tornado warnings.
