Giant Voice Mass Notification System

The university uses an indoor/outdoor mass notification system at the Main Campus, Downtown Campus and Institute of Texan Cultures. The system features eight outdoor siren towers that optimally can be heard within 1,600 feet of each tower on the Main Campus. In an emergency, the high-power sirens broadcast alerts via a live or recorded voice message tailored to the emergency situation. Most buildings feature an indoor emergency notification system, which utilizes the fire alarm system speakers to broadcast emergency messages.
