MTSU plans to test its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex Wednesday, May 11, at 11:15 a.m.
This will be a brief, routine test of the system, and no safety actions will be required.
In the event of inclement weather, 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.
The university begins its summer 2016 classes on Monday, May 9.
