Campus all hazards warning system l.jpg
Campus All-Hazards Warning System

Bruce McAvoy

Public Safety

Campus all hazards warning system16 l.jpg
Campus All-Hazards Warning System

  • Initially the system was in response to the Tornado in April 2006, to provide better severe weather notification coverage to the UI Campus

  • Can be used for more than just severe weather, but for “all-hazards” (chemical release, violent incident, etc.)

  • Has the capabilities to transmit “live voice” from a central location

Campus all hazards warning system17 l.jpg
Campus All-Hazards Warning System

System Components

  • 5 “siren” towers

    All solar powered, radio activated, installed on 55 ft. steel poles, and are expandable to 10 cells

    • Parklawn (10 Cell Tower)

    • Banks Field (8 Cell Tower)

    • Boyd Law (6 Cell Tower)

    • Melrose & Morman Trek (6 Cell Tower)

    • Oakdale Campus (6 Cell)

Campus all hazards warning system18 l.jpg

System Components, continued

  • 3 siren encoders

    • UI PD Emergency Communication Center

    • UI PD Command Vehicle (Explorer)

    • Portable Kenwood Handheld Radio

  • Remote receivers (VA-2000)

    Receives alerts issued from UI PD via warning system; text messages in place of recorded messages and has “live voice” capabilities.

  • During severe weather events when other sirens in Johnson County are activated

  • At the direction of the UI leadership during other events


  • “Silent tested” every week

  • Functional testing first Monday of every month

When you can combine an all-hazards outdoor warning system with voice capabilities and a text messaging mass notification system, you can reach over 99% of your campus during an emergency situation.

Initially the team evaluated 10 Access and Control Monitoring System manufacturers.

Through evaluation and by applying a points grading system the team narrowed the list to three manufacturers: AMAG Technology, Lenel Systems, and Software House.

AMAG, Lenel and Software House representatives were invited to campus for a presentation of their systems software/firmware technical and functional characteristics.

After extension review, analysis, and end-user testing: AMAG and Lenel were selected as having acceptable solutions for our ACMS needs.

  • Creating a Secure Campus

    Is a shared responsibility and is being led by the UI Police Dept., Facilities Management, and Academic and Research Departments.

    Through the collaborative efforts of these key stakeholders an Access and Security Strategic Plan is being developed.
