Accidental outdoor siren activation on October 18
Dear Stanford Community Member,
This morning, Stanford’s outdoor emergency warning system malfunctioned, resulting in an activation of the entire siren system around 3:10am. We were able to deactivate the system; however, the tower on Stanford Ave continued to malfunction. We immediately began working with technicians to remedy the problem. Unfortunately, it has taken several hours to diagnose and resolve the malfunction.
I want to extend my sincere apologies for the inconvenience. We are investigating what caused the malfunction and will take steps to avoid future disruptions.
Updates will be posted on this website when available.
If you have questions, you may contact the Stanford Department of Public Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org or 650-723-9633.
Chief of Police, Stanford
