College to test mass notification system

SUNY New Paltz will perform an audible test of its mass notification speaker system on Monday, March 4, at approximately 1 p.m.

Members of the New Paltz community may hear a series of loud tones followed by a voice indicating that this is only a TEST of the College’s emergency notification system.

This system is only activated in accordance with the College’s Emergency Response Plan and at the discretion of select members of the campus’ Emergency Response Team. For more information about the College’s emergency communications or response plan, visit the Emergency Management website at
