Letter to the editor: Summer emergency sirens

Today the University will be conducting our summer semester emergency sirens test between noon and 1 p.m. We want to make sure these sirens and all equipment are working properly, as well as ensure that our community knows what to do when there is a threat to campus safety.

While no action is required for these sirens tests, we encourage all students, faculty and staff to read the Alert Carolina e-mail in your inbox detailing instructions for what to do in the event of a real emergency.

We will also use all available communication methods, including text messages and social media, to try and reach as many people as possible, including those not on campus. You may see some of these messages during today’s sirens test.

The most recent safety-related information and announcements can be found at alertcarolina.unc.edu.

Thank you.

Jeff McCracken

Director and Chief of Police

Derek Kemp

Associate Vice Chancellor for Campus Safety and Risk Management
