Kent State’s Department of Public Safety Will Initiate Fire/Emergency Evacuation Drills on Sept. 11

Posted Sep. 9, 2013

On Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 11 a.m., Kent State University's Department of Public Safety will test the emergency notification system on the Kent Campus.

The purpose of this annual exercise is to familiarize students and employees with building evacuations and precautions to be taken in event of a fire or any other type of emergency.

No actual evacuation will take place during this exercise. Instead, classroom instructors and unit supervisors are asked to review the guidelines with their respective students and employees. As always, listen to the message and follow the instructions given.

Additional information on building evacuation and fire guidelines are available in the emergency guide area of the Kent State website at

At the end of the exercise, if you experienced any problems understanding or hearing the message, please email or call Bill Buckbee, assistant director of Emergency and Special Services at the Kent State Police Department, at or 330-672-1034.
