Community Engagement Framework

We face new challenges and changing circumstances. Being part of the solution is critical if we’re to say we’re creating the neighborhoods and city of our dreams. Check out what we’ve come up with below. We’ve been advocating for city staff to adopt these engagement frames.

Maybe if we had these in place we wouldn’t be getting warehouses 50 feet from our back yards or toxic superfund sites like the Ag Park.

Screaming Sirens Serenading Neighbors Thursday March 30th.

UCR to Test Emergency Siren – This Thursday

<https://universityriverside.nextdoor.com/news_feed/?post=46245616>

This Thursday, March 30th, UCR will be testing and calibrating its emergency siren located at the bell tower intermittently between 9:00 am and 12:00 noon.

During this time you will hear multiple tones periodically from the Bell Tower. These will be loud steady sirens and “whoop-whoop” sounds that vary in intensity and type, some with verbal instructions. There is no action to take during this time.

This test is one of the last steps to fully implement an integrated notification system to alert campus students, staff, faculty and neighbors in the event of an emergency. The system will include the siren, text messages, email, reverse phone calls, web updates, and KUCR radio.

A survey is available for you to provide your comments, questions, or concerns about the tests at http://campusstatus.ucr.edu<http://campusstatus.ucr.edu/>. For more information, please contact emergency@ucr.edu<mailto:emergency@ucr.edu> or951.827.4255
