OU Police IT maintains an outdoor public address system which can be used to broadcast urgent, real-time information to anyone making their way between buildings or to parking lots.
The loudspeaker system will be used primarily for emergencies, so listeners should be aware that most messages they hear on the system are both urgent and critical to the health and safety of the campus community.
The public address system may not be used in all emergency situations, but will be used any time there is imminent danger to people on campus and for any other situations deemed appropriate. Periodic test messages will be broadcast over the system.
The public address system works in tandem with emergency phones
located throughout campus. Blue lights on the phones will flash when messages are broadcast over strategically located loudspeakers.
