The Georgia Tech Siren Warning System (SWS) test will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7. The system is typically tested the first Thursday of the month.

To ensure that the Georgia Tech Siren Warning System is in continuous operational condition, the Office of Emergency Preparedness tests the system on a monthly basis.

All speaker stations will be tested simultaneously playing the following test message at least two times or more to ensure valid testing. The test message is: "Attention. Attention. This is a test of the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System. This is only a test. This is a test of the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System. This is only a test.”

The Siren Warning System is comprised of seven speaker stations located across campus. Designed to notify people who are outdoors, the system complements the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System (GTENS) which delivers time-sensitive emergency messages in the form of e-mail, voicemail and text messages to the campus community.

The SWS will only be used for emergency situations, monthly testing or special testing.
