Outdoor Severe Weather Warning System on NMSU campus to be tested first Wednesday of the month

If you hear a siren on the New Mexico State University campus at noon Wednesday, don't be alarmed. The university?s Outdoor Severe Weather Warning Systems are activated for one-minute blasts on the first Wednesday of each month as a test to ensure they are functioning properly. Two pole-mounted sirens, which sound the severe weather warnings, are located on the eastern and western ends of campus. The Outdoor Severe Weather Warning System is part of the university's emergency system and will be used to communicate weather-related emergencies for individuals who are located outside a building.

In a weather-related emergency, the weather warning sirens will be engaged for two minutes or longer and will alert members of the campus and surrounding community to immediately seek shelter and once they are safe to check the NMSU website or local news for additional information.

Employees registered with the Emergency Notification System may choose to receive emergency information via email, voicemail or text messaging service. Sign up for emergency alerts at: https://myaccount.nmsu.edu/accounts/etm/index.php.
