UNM Emergency Alert Sirens
The University of New Mexico Emergency Alert Sirens are sounded in the event of an emergency that makes it dangerous to be outdoors, such as a severe lightning storm, an environmental hazard or a threat from an armed individual. During an alert, people who are not on campus and hear the siren should not come on campus. People who are on campus should seek shelter in the nearest building.
The University plans to test the siren once a semester. Students, faculty and staff who have added their cell phone information into the LoboAlerts System will receive a text message informing them of the test.
