CSS testing Emergency Notification System Friday night

Brock University’s Campus Security Services will be conducting testing of the Emergency Notification System (ENS) on Friday, May 10 during the scheduled annual power shutdown.

The shutdown, which takes place each spring, allows Facilities Management to perform preventative maintenance and repairs to the University’s electrical infrastructure and will impact Schmon Tower, Thistle Complex, DeCew Residence, Vallee Residence, Central Utilities Building, the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex and Welch Hall between 9 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday.

For buildings not impacted by the power outage, such as Mackenzie Chown Complex, Scotiabank Hall and Walker Sports Complex, Campus Security Services will test the ENS after 10 p.m. Test messages shown on screens will include specific wording telling people to lock down, evacuate or stand by. These are test messages only and will be preceded and followed by announcements reminding anyone in the buildings that they’re not real emergencies.
