Monthly Siren Test
VCU will conduct the monthly siren test at noon this Wednesday, July 2. Monthly siren tests are conducted on the first Wednesday of each month. The monthly siren test involves a one-minute siren activation using a steady or even tone for the sirens located on the Monroe Park and MCV campuses. In an actual life-threatening emergency, the sirens will be activated for four minutes to warn people external to VCU facilities that there is an immediate risk to the area. There is no "all clear" siren as that information is distributed via the other VCU Alert technologies.
