Whenever an alert message is being delivered through Griffon Alert, several outdoor public address (PA) systems will provide a digitally produced voice of the warning to persons outdoors. Missouri Western is comprised of over 700 acres. The PA systems are designed to reach outdoor areas on the main campus and in the residential hall areas and will not be heard on all areas of the campus. White outdoor strobes are located on the campus buildings to further warn campus outdoor occupants that some type of warning is being issued and that they should investigate further.
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.
