Posted: September 25, 2013

HARRISONBURG — James Madison University will conduct a test of their emergency response communication systems on Thursday starting at 3 p.m.

At that time, students, faculty and staff who have enrolled in the ECS will receive a text or voice message. A blast email also will be sent to the JMU community. The Madison Alert, the university’s outdoor siren and public address system, also will be activated with a siren and audible message broadcast across the system.
