DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire is testing its outdoor notification system on Friday, Aug. 15, which will include a siren, message and a recording signaling the end of the test.

The test is expected to take less than 10 minutes and will happen between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

At the same time, UNH will send messages through its alert system to registered cellphones, pagers, BlackBerrys, PDAs and/or email accounts, and a directed communication to UNH faculty, staff and students.

The outdoor notification system is designed to not only alert the campus community when there is imminent danger but also follows up with voice instructions.

The system reaches a distance of nearly a mile in all directions.
