Main Campus lockdown testing scheduled

On Thursday, June 13th, between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m., we will be conducting a building lockdown test for all the buildings on Main Campus. Campus Police, Facilities personnel and Building Coordinators, as well as vendor/contractor personnel will be assisting. The test will involve placing the entire Main Campus in a lockdown state, and then checking to confirm that all doors have secured as expected. We will be performing the test twice. While buildings are locked down, employees will continue to have access using their Raider Card. We will have staff positioned at building entrances to allow for customer access. The G1 and G2 parking areas will be closed for entrance/exit during the test, so please plan accordingly.  If you need an alternate parking arrangement for the afternoon, please contact Campus Police. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Chief Whitman or Vicki Janowiak.
