BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: FAU) — Florida Atlantic University is scheduled to test all components of the FAU Alert system the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 2. The FAU Alert system is designed to play a key role in keeping FAU’s students, faculty, staff and campus visitors safe during emergency situations.
At approximately 11:00 a.m., the emergency siren and PA system will be activated on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, as well as at the John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter and at FAU’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in Fort Pierce. During this test, a loud siren sound and a spoken message will be heard across campus, as well as in neighborhoods and business areas located near the campuses.
Additionally, FAU’s university-wide email, telephone alert, web alert, social media, digital signage and text messaging will be tested that morning. FAU will also test its toll-free emergency hotline phone number – 1-888-8FAU-OWL (8328-695). Users of the FAU Owl Ready app also will receive alerts.
