Test of Emergency Broadcast Warning System - TOMORROW (Wednesday, October 28th)

Bridgewater State College will conduct a test of its outdoor warning siren on Wednesday, October 28 between 12:05 and 12:20 p.m.

The siren is installed atop the college’s Maxwell Library on Shaw Road. The siren will sound a loud warning tone, followed by a brief audio message noting that the broadcast is a test.

The siren is part of BSC’s campus alert system, which has been developed for the purpose of notifying the Bridgewater State College community in case of an imminent threat or danger on the campus or in the immediate vicinity. The test is being conducted to ensure that the audio warning system is in proper working order.

Campus community members and neighbors in the surrounding area who may hear the siren on October 28 should not be alarmed by the siren, as it is only a test.
