Be aware of UH’s outdoor warning siren system

Siren awareness posters are posted all over campus. Be sure and visit www.uh.edu/emergency so you will always be ready! The University of Houston’s outdoor warning siren system is part of the emergency alert notification system. The system is designed to alert students, faculty, staff and visitors of impending outdoor danger.

The system is activated by the Department of Public Safety in the event of an emergency when it may be unsafe to be outdoors. The system provides a quick method of notifying the entire main campus with an audible tone that can be heard outdoors alerting everyone to seek shelter indoors.

During a real emergency, the system is used in conjunction with other communication channels like email, the UH Emergency Operations Center website and text messaging.
