Longwood’s Notification System

The goal of our emergency notification system is to provide as many avenues for information sharing as possible in the event of an emergency.

Siren & Voice Alerts

This communication system is designed to broadcast audible safety sirens and live or recorded voice alerts to the campus community as quickly as possible during times of extreme circumstances such as a tornado or police emergency affecting campus.

The system utilizes battery back up protection in the event of a power loss and has the capability of alerting the entire campus or individual areas depending on the scope of the emergency.

This outside warning network consists of six speaker arrays. Learn More

Text / Email Alerts

With the popularity and widespread use of cell phones and the fact that most people own or have access to a computer, this communication system helps to ensure important alerts are delivered to all members of the campus community – inside or outside.
