RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia Commonwealth University will test their upgraded siren system on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at noon. 

The test will include sirens installed on the Monroe Park and MCV campuses and a new siren at VCU Police headquarters, located at 224 E. Broad Street. 

With the new siren, residents and businesses in the area will hear the signals more clearly than when the sirens were only located on VCU’s campus. The test will involve a one-minute siren activation using a steady tone.
