MTSU plans to test its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex this Wednesday, Jan. 11, at 11:15 a.m.
This will be a brief, routine test of the system, and no safety actions will be required.
If harsh weather is in the area around the time of the scheduled testing, the test will 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 between semesters and no classes are underway, but offices are operating on regular schedules. The university’s spring 2017 semester begins Tuesday, Jan. 17.
