UCSB Emergency Speaker Testing

Monday, January 21

As part of UC Santa Barbara's ongoing emergency preparedness efforts, the campus has recently added five new wide-area emergency speakers that will broadcast emergency messages throughout the campus. There will be testing of all campuswide emergency speakers on Monday, January 21, which is a campus holiday. It's possible that these emergency broadcasts will be heard in the adjoining Isla Vista neighborhoods.

Testing will be intermittent throughout the day and will consist of 5 to 10 minutes of broadcasting over each speaker. These 5- to 10-minute broadcasts will be conducted multiple times to synchronize and test the speakers. The speakers will emit a series of Emergency Test Phrases - for example, "This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System," followed by a specific emergency statement such as "Tsunami Warning."
