Outdoor Warning System

The University of Richmond (UR) has an Emergency Notification System (ENS) with multi‐channel communication capabilities.  One component of the ENS is the Outdoor Warning System (OWS).  The OWS consists of clusters of outdoor speakers centrally located on campus. It is capable of playing a recorded message or live audio from the UR Police Department Dispatcher. The system is most frequently used to alert persons outside to seek shelter indoors immediately due to an approaching tornado.

The OWS will be tested once a semester.  The timing of these tests will be announced in advance.
