HIGH POINT, N.C., June 4, 2014 – High Point University will hold a routine test for its emergency preparedness system at 4:30 p.m. today. It is standard practice for the university to test the system on the first Wednesday of each semester after classes resume.
During the test, a text message, email and voice message will be sent to all students, faculty and staff on campus for Summer Session 1, in addition to ringing all campus phones. No action needs to be taken by those who receive the alerts.
There will be no siren activation during the test.
“High Point University is committed to a comprehensive security and emergency preparedness plan,” says Jeff Karpovich, CPP, chief of security and transportation at HPU. “Testing our systems regularly allows us to maintain a safe environment for our students and ensure our ability to quickly notify the campus community in the event of an emergency or hazardous situation.”
