Alert Beacons with voice annunciators are located in the halls of most buildings at Missouri Western.
When a message is being delivered, the beacon will light up with flashing lights and an emergency sound will be emitted from the beacon to gain initial attention. After a brief time, the sounder volume will decrease allowing a voice annuciator above the beacon to be heard. The message being delivered will be heard from a digitally produced voice. The message will also be displayed in text form on an LED screen located on the front of the beacon.
Emergency actions requested by Griffon Alert should be followed by all faculty, staff, students and visitors until an ALL CLEAR is issued. All components of the Griffon Alert System will be used to announce the ALL CLEAR for any major emergency.
