RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Sirens will sound in Virginia’s capital city as VCU conducts a full test of its emergency communication systems.

The testing at noon Wednesday will include 10 sirens sounding throughout the Monroe Park and MCV campuses in Richmond.

The testing will also include text messages, mass emails, digital signs, social media and the VCU website, among others. They are all intended to communicate emergency information to VCU students, faculty, staff, visitors and the community at large.
