September 21st, 2009 by Adam

The PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren Test that was scheduled for today will be rescheduled. More information will be available at a future time.


Plymouth, N.H,—Plymouth State University will test its PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren at noon, Wednesday, Sept. 23.

The test will last about five minutes. The purpose of the PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is to notify campus and community residents, staff and visitors to an imminent threat or danger.

The PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is located on a pole adjacent to the Hartman Union Building on High Street and should be audible outdoors for approximately a one-mile radius.

PSU’s emergency alert communication systems will also be tested.

    On and off campus (For community members not affiliated with PSU):

  • PSU Alert Line (535-3535)
  • PSU Web site
    On campus only:

  • PSU Alert emergency text messages
  • PSU Need2Know (campus e-mail)

The PSU Alert Emergency Outdoor Siren is part of a comprehensive emergency alert system PSU has established to respond to emergencies.

The siren is tested twice a year (at noon on the third Wednesday in September and February) and otherwise will sound only when there is threat of imminent danger to those in the campus community. Originally scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 16, the fall semester siren test date was moved to accommodate the memorial service for PSU student Jena Pothier.
