College to test mass notification system on Tuesday, July 6

SUNY New Paltz will perform an audible test of its mass notification speaker system on Tuesday, July 6, at approximately 1 p.m.

Those who are on campus 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. The speaker broadcast will be simulcast through certain buildings on campus via their fire alarm systems.

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.
