FAU to Test Emergency Alert System

Florida Atlantic University will test all components of the FAU Alert System on Thursday, March 5. At approximately 10 a.m., the outdoor warning sirens on the Boca Raton, Jupiter and Harbor Branch campuses will be activated. During this test, a loud siren sound and a spoken message will be heard across the campuses as well as in nearby neighborhoods and business areas.
FAU’s University-wide email, text message alert, telephone alert, web alert, emergency hotlines, digital signage, desktop alerts and social media will be tested at the same time. FAU Owl Ready App users will also receive alerts.
