The multi-pronged system includes visual, auditory and electronic messages to alert as many people as possible. No evacuation is necessary.

Alerts include “Test Today” sandwich boards at prominent locations around campus, notices on the HSU homepage, announcements on 826-INFO and KHSU 90.5 FM and text messages to registered cell phone users. To register your cell phone, visit the Account Center on the Quick Links section of the HSU Homepage. Assistance with registration is also available through the HELP desk at (707) 826-4357.

The public address system will broadcast electronic alert high-low tones, a spoken test message and a concluding “all clear” tone. White strobe lights will flash from various rooftop locations.
