Test of emergency notification system set for Nov. 18

The University of South Carolina Emergency Management Team will conduct a test of the emergency notification systems at noon Thursday, Nov. 18.

The test will include notification through the university’s four outdoor sirens and tone alert radios, text messaging, the Carolina Alert website, social media and the Gamecock Cable TV Network.

After the test alert, faculty, staff and students are encouraged to fill out on online survey to give their comments on the effectiveness of the notification systems.
