Alertus Beacon Instructions

Alert Beacons inform classroom occupants with sounds and flashing strobes while a large text display informs classroom occupants of the emergency and instructs them how to respond.

Emergency alert devices have been installed in some classrooms at FSU that do not have other alert systems as part of the room's construction. The last instruction is especially important so you will not unnecessarily disrupt your class.
