Test of KU emergency system planned for Tuesday afternoon

April 23, 2012


Kansas University intends to test its emergency public address system, including an external speaker array, at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

During the test, a three-second tone will sound, followed by a test message.

About a minute after the public address system test, the external speaker array, set up in the west parking area of Murphy Hall will be tested.

The array is designed to be heard at a half-mile radius and can be heard indoors and outdoors. KU is considering adding a similar service to its emergency notification system.

In case of inclement weather, the test will be postponed until Thursday.

Seriously, when will you guys learn? Its the University of Kansas, not Kansas University. Its pretty sad, and incredibly disappointing when the local paper can't even get easy things like that correct. Terrible journalism.

They do it on purpose, someone from LJW commented on why they do it that way, can't remember why.

Is it really that big of a deal? Seems like there are more important things to worry about.

Well when KU clearly says its NOT "Kansas University" you'd think these guys could figure it out. Pretty basic journalism.
