On Monday, September 29, starting at 1:45 p.m., Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will perform a full test of the RPIAlert system. The RPIAlert system is used to provide information quickly to the community during an emergency and could help save lives.

During the test, the RPIAlert system will sound a siren throughout the campus community and extending into the neighboring community. The siren test will last about five minutes. The system will also send text messages, voicemails, and emails to members of the RPI community.

Anyone with questions can call the Rensselaer Department of Public Safety at 518-276-6656.

Go to http://alert.rpi.edu to learn more. During an emergency, this will be the initial source of information for the Rensselaer community, the media, and our neighbors in the community.
