GVSU’s Allendale campus, and all communities within Ottawa County, will complete monthly planned testing of the tornado warning siren system each first  Friday of the month at noon.  The test will consist of a 1 to 3 minute steady tone.  In the event of actual severe weather, the test will be postponed.

This is informational only.  No immediate action is required.  In the event of an actual weather emergency, members of the GVSU community should already be aware of safe areas on campus.  When the sirens sound, please make yourself aware of the closest designated tornado safety area.  Safety areas are identified on signs located in the interior hallways on the lowest floor of all buildings on campus.  For a complete list of safety locations visit:
