Siren Test This Saturday, March 12
The monthly test of the Vanderbilt outdoor warning sirens will be on Saturday, March 12.
During tests, the sirens typically sound for 15-30 seconds; during an actual alert, the sirens sound for 3 minutes.
The test of the Vanderbilt siren system is preceded by an announcement stating “This is a test of the Vanderbilt Severe Weather Sirens. This is only a test.” Because voice announcements do not carry as far as the siren wail, the announcements may not be audible in all locations prior to the test.
