Important update to emergency testing scheduled for Wednesday, April 10
Due to the possibility of severe weather in and around Oakland County Wednesday afternoon, the Oakland County Homeland Security Division has cancelled emergency preparedness testing at 1 p.m. This is being done to avoid confusion in the event of a need to activate the warning siren for an actual emergency.
Members of the campus community should note that if the warning siren located on the roof of Varner Hall is activated at any time today, it will have been done so in connection with an actual severe weather warning. Campus community members should then take appropriate precautions.
The Oakland University Police Department, which had planned to test a new emergency text alert system in conjunction with the county’s emergency preparedness test, will conduct the test at 1 p.m., as originally planned.
