As part of Florida State University’s FSU ALERT Emergency Notification System, the university currently has 70 buildings capable of indoor emergency alerts throughout the buildings.
These are a combination of alert tone, followed by voice instructions. In most cases, the alerts are delivered via the existing fire alarm system or other public address system already in the building.
This system is tied directly into the Outdoor Warning Sirens. Simultaneously as the sirens are blaring outside, an equivalent message is played indoors of these buildings.
In the event of an emergency which urgently threatens the safety of persons, the University may sound the indoor and/or outdoor sirens.
The alert tones are very loud and distinct and should be easily heard by anyone who is inside these buildings. The alert tone will be followed by voice instructions, which should be clearly intelligible. Regardless if you can comprehend the voice instructions, the default action anytime the indoor siren is sounded is to: Seek shelter away from doors and windows and seek further information from the Alerts Page or 644-INFO.
Examples of the warning alert sounds and voice instructions which may be played:
- Weather Emergencies:
- Other Emergencies:
- Administrative Announcements:
The indoor siren system is a product of American Signal Corporation.
