Officials are conducting maintenance on two of the Alert Carolina siren / PA towers on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 4. One is located near Hinton-James Resident Hall and the other is located off Mason Farm Road.
This maintenance will require separate activation of the towers that will produce chimes unlike the normal Alert Carolina siren. The chime will be accompanied by a PA announcement which will indicate that no emergency exists.
The tower activation may occur as early as 5 p.m. Thursday evening and activation of the second tower should be completed by mid-evening. Periodic maintenance ensures that the system will operate effectively in the event of a real campus emergency.
