Emergency tests planned Tuesday and Wednesday

Seminole State College of Florida will test its emergency communication tools on Tuesday, Feb. 28, and Wednesday, March 1, to provide critical information to students, staff and faculty members, family members and the public.

Emergency Alert Phone System

Seminole State will test its Emergency Alert Phone System at 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, and Wednesday, March 1.

The timing of these tests is designed to familiarize day and evening students, faculty and staff with the system.

The phone test will last about 90 seconds.

Here's what to expect:

  • An emergency sound will emanate from the speakers of all campus phones, followed by a brief test message.
  • Phone calls will be placed on hold during the 90-second test.
  • A text message will follow on Cisco IP phones. Hit "Exit" to remove the text message.

Text messaging

Those signed up for emergency messaging through Alert Seminole or the LifeLine Response personal safety mobile app should receive a test text message at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28. All Seminole State students, faculty and staff are encouraged to sign up for emergency text messaging through Alert Seminole and to download the free LifeLine app.

College website

From 10:30-11 a.m. and from 6:30-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, Seminole State will test its emergency website. A scrolling message will be seen at the top of nearly all College webpages.
