Saint Martin's University mass notification system
Saint Martin's University has a mass notification system that is capable of
alerting the campus community in the event of a campus emergency or health and
Saint Martin's has two wide-area emergency broadcast system (WEBS) blue-light
towers on campus. Each tower contains an emergency call phone connected directly
to Thurston County 9-1-1 and four 40-watt broadcast speakers allowing outdoor
notification over a 1,000 foot radius.
The WEBS blue-light phones are located in the Lynch faculty/staff parking lot
(D) and along the north shoulder of Baran Drive at the end of the pathway
leading from the Jan Halliday Plaza to Baran Drive.
When activated, the system is capable of alerting the campus community using
a combination of tones sirens and voice. The mass notification system will only
be used by Saint Martin's for emergency notification purposes and periodic
testing of the system.
Caution: Please keep in mind Saint Martin's wide-area emergency broadcast
system is one of the many forms of communication which may be utilized in an
emergency. While we believe this system is effective and efficient, you should
not wait for, or rely exclusively on, a WEBS to contact you for appropriate
action in response to an emergency. Be aware of your surroundings, and take
