Stanford sirens malfunction

 

A malfunction in Stanford's outdoor emergency warning system resulted in a siren system going off around 3:10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

The system was deactivated, but the siren at Stanford tower continued for several hours before it could be turned off, according to Stanford public safety officers.

It appears the system malfunctioned after a software update led to a system reboot around 3 a.m. "We are taking steps to improve our response so that we can better serve the community," said Stanford officials on their emergency information website.
