At 1 p.m., the division will conduct its annual test of the outdoor severe weather warning siren system. This will include the siren located on the roof of Varner Hall.
At the same time on that day, the OUPD will take advantage of this opportunity to test the Rave Mobile Safety text alert system.
All subscribers will receive a text message as part of the exercise. Subscribers who do not receive a text at or shortly after 1 p.m. should notify the OUPD at firstname.lastname@example.org
. New subscribers should activate their accounts at least 24 hours prior to the test in order to participate.
"The Oakland University Police Department would like to encourage those who have not registered for the emergency notification alerts to do so,” said Captain Mark Gordon.
“It is one of many systems used to notify community members of an emergency in a timely manner. The service is free and may provide valuable information about safety during an emergency that will benefit students, faculty, and staff as a whole."
