- About Plattsburgh
SUNY Plattsburgh uses a variety of methods to notify the campus community of incidents that occur on campus. These methods include but are not limited to:
These methods are employed depending on the situation and may be utilized before, during and/or after an event. It is important to monitor appropriate outlets for information, including those operated by local and regional agencies.
SUNY Plattsburgh has installed outdoor warning sirens in strategic locations across campus.
The sirens supplement our Emergency Notification System and are designed to be activated when there is an imminent threat to life and safety on or around campus, such as an active shooter, a severe weather emergency or a hazardous materials incident.
Sirens are designed to only be heard outdoors. Upon activation, a tone will sound from the speakers signaling an emergency. When heard, the campus community should take the following actions:
Once it is determined the situation no longer poses a threat, an “all clear” message will be provide through one or several means of the campus’ notification systems noted above.
The Emergency Notification System will be tested periodically during the year to ensure it is functioning properly. Notification will be made prior to any testing.
