PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University will test its PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren at noon, Wednesday, September 18.
The test will last about five minutes. The purpose of the PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is to notify campus and community residents, staff and visitors to an imminent threat or danger.
The PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is part of a comprehensive emergency alert system established to respond to emergencies. The siren is located on a pole adjacent to the Hartman Union Building on High Street and should be audible outdoors for approximately a one-mile radius.
The siren is tested twice a year (at noon on the third Wednesday in September and February) and otherwise will sound only when there is threat of imminent danger to those in the campus community.
Questions or comments regarding the PSU Emergency Alert Siren test can be sent to Chief Public Relations Officer Timothy Kershner at 535-2476.

PLYMOUTH — Is gay marriage legal? Should the government eavesdrop on your phone and email conversations? Should drones target American citizens? These vexing legal questions will be front and center Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m. as Plymouth State University celebrates Constitution Day.
