At 10:15 a.m. Thursday (Oct. 15), WKU Police will conduct a test of WKU’s outdoor warning and text messaging alert systems in conjunction with the national Earthquake Awareness Exercise known as the “Great American Shake Out.”
Tests like these are important to verify that national emergency communications networks, including media outlets, community warning networks, etc., will function should a real emergency occur. There are no additional actions that you need to take beyond verifying that you received the text alert, or if you are outdoors on the main campus you should hear the outdoor warning messaging,
