Monday @ 11:20AM, It's Only A Test!

(MURFREESBORO) The EMERGENCY SIRENS at Middle Tennessee State University will be tested at 11:20AM Monday morning (9/5/2022). It's the first Monday of the month, and the TORNADO SIRENS at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum along with the ones on the MTSU campus--will be tested.

Only a TEST--nothing to do with FLOOD WATCH

Keep in mind, the running of the sirens is only a test.  It has nothing to do with the FLOOD WATCH that was issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA). The FLOOD WATCH is in effect until Monday (9/5/2022) evening.


The university notifies the campus and surrounding neighborhoods before these monthly tests. Tests are conducted on the first Monday of each month, even if the university's closed for a holiday.  

Though the university will be closed for the holiday, this will be a brief opportunity to ensure MTSU's outdoor warning system is working as needed. No safety actions will be required.  

The campus community can prepare for emergency weather situations anytime by checking MTSU’s list of recommended shelter locations at

Again, when the TORNADO SIRENS at MTSU go off at 11:20AM this Monday, "Labor Day", it's only a test!
