CHAPEL HILL – The emergency siren and text message test on UNC’s campus is being postponed due to the threat of inclement weather.

The emergency system test was scheduled to take place between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, but that is a time when inclement weather is projected to move into the area.

Department of Public Safety Chief Jeff McCracken said he was concerned that the test may cause undue confusion, especially if an actual alert message has to be announced.

The new test date has not yet been determined.
