Subject: FYI - JHU Emergency Campus Siren/PA Test &JHU Info Hub
Neighbors of the Homewood Campus:
Please distribute this notice to others living and working in the
neighborhoods proximate to the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus in Charles
Village regarding (1) a test of the emergency alert system and (2) The Hub (a
new web-based center with news and other info at JHU, including many
resources for our neighbors).
Homewood Campus Safety and Security will conduct a test of the campus
siren/public address system and the Johns Hopkins Emergency Alert text messaging
system at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, 2012. The text alerts are only
available to Johns Hopkins affiliates.
The test will be a full-scale simultaneous activation of both the siren/PA
and emergency text system. The sirens will simultaneously sound the alert
tone and then sequentially broadcast the voice message, announcing, "This is a
test of the Homewood campus emergency warning system." Those Johns Hopkins
affiliates who have subscribed to the text message alert system will receive
a brief message that reads, "This is a test of the Homewood Emergency Alert
text message system. There is NO EMERGENCY. Had there been an imminent
threat additional information would follow." Shortly after the public address
broadcast, an all-clear alert tone will sound, followed by the message saying,
in part, "This has been a test of the Homewood campus emergency warning
system. Had there been an actual emergency, you would have been given specific
instructions on what to do."
Because the public address system incorporates a silent self-test feature
that will exercise each module on a weekly basis, Campus Safety and Security
will schedule "live" tests only three times a year. The main purpose of the
exercise is to familiarize the Homewood community with the sound of the
system. Except for these periodic tests, the system will be used only in the
event of an incident or situation that presents a significant threat to the
lives or safety of the campus community.

easier. The Hub is an online news center where readers can see what's new,
what's important and what’s interesting at Johns Hopkins, every day. Health,
science, arts, athletics, university news … it’s all in the Hub. Visit the
