AU ALERT is an emergency notification system that notifies faculty, staff, and students of critical information and situations affecting campus through the use of text messages, voice messages to multiple phone numbers, email, and more. Sign up for AU ALERT at www.auburn.edu/aualert. This system makes immediate notifications across campus without delay.
TONE ALERT RADIOS
Tone alert radios have been placed in all regularly occupied buildings on campus. The radios broadcast a warning tone and then specific information such as severe weather warnings or other emergencies on campus.
OUTDOOR WARNING SIRENS
Outdoor warning sirens are in place around campus to alert people of severe weather. Once the sirens are activated, members of the campus community should seek shelter and tune to radios or television for updates and instructions. These sirens could also be used in the event of other emergencies. However, activation will still require seeking shelter from the outdoors.
NOAA WEATHER RADIOS
NOAA weather radios are located in some buildings on campus. The NOAA weather alert radios receive information directly from the National Weather Service. This information includes current weather and also any issued watches or warnings.
BUILDING FIRE ALARMS
Fire alarms are in place to notify building occupants of possible fire dangers in the building. If you hear the fire alarm, evacuate the building immediately.
Other communications systems such as public address systems and building intercoms are being evaluated and could be in place very soon.
