Emergency: UNC issues 'All Clear'

UNC has issued the instruction "All clear. Resume normal activities" to the campus community.

The all clear signal means the threat to the campus is over.

When the sirens are activated – and when there is an "all clear" – the University also sends a text message to the cell phone numbers registered by students, faculty and staff in the online campus directory. The University also communicates about an emergency using sources including:  campus-wide email and voice mail (for campus land lines), the Adverse Weather and Emergency Phone Line, 843-1234, for recorded information, and the University Access Channel (Chapel Hill Time Warner Cable Channel 4) along with other campus television channels.
