Western will conduct two tests of its emergency weather siren on Tuesday, Sept. 3 as part of the orientation process for new students. The siren will be activated during morning and afternoon sessions at approximately 12 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Western’s weather siren is in place to warn those on campus that severe weather, such as a tornado, is imminent and shelter should be taken immediately.

On campus, protective areas from a tornado may be sought in buildings of substantial masonry construction. Most university facilities have interior spaces or hallways away from exterior walls and windows that may be used as shelter.
