MTSU plans to test its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 11:15 a.m.

This will be a brief, routine test of the system, and no safety actions will be required. If inclement weather is present, the test may be canceled.

MTSU notifies the campus and surrounding neighborhoods before these tests each month. Tests are conducted on alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays to minimize distractions for classes and neighbors.

MTSU is currently on winter break. Spring 2016 classes are set to begin Tuesday, Jan. 19.
