Emergency siren test set Wednesday

The College of William and Mary will test its emergency notification system Wednesday.

The drill will be conducted at 12:15 p.m., and include both a test of the campus-wide siren system and the mass notification messaging system.

The 120-decibel siren system is stationed above the Integrated Science Center, the William and Mary Law School on South Henry St. and the School of Education building off Monticello Avenue.
