Mid-State Communications provided a Whelen Engineering solution to boost their campus alerting systems.


HCCC Omni Warning System by WhelenA quote from their web site, "Herkimer County Community College considers communication during an emergency situation an important part of its overall Crisis Plan.  Currently HCCC uses several ways to communicate with students, faculty and staff; including email, NY-Alert, College Web Site, and now an emergency siren located on the top of the Physical Education Building."


Email and phone dialing systems are an important part of any campus safety program but it must be remembered that these methods take valuable time to propagate through to the recipient. In a crisis, minutes can prove disastrous, speed is critical and a Whelen Campus Safety system can be activated and heard and seen in a matter of seconds

Hamilton College Siren Installtion













Mid-State Communications designed a Whelen® Outdoor Warning Siren System consisting of 3 WPS2902 voice and tone units. This system provides outdoor coverage of their 350 acre campus.

The system was designed to be activated from a fixed location or, in the event that location is impractical to use during an emergency, from a mobile controller. The control system includes two-way diagnostic feedback and WHELEN’s Si-Test feature, which allows Hamilton College to silently test the system without disturbing the campus or having to visit each site.

“The outdoor warning system is just one part of our multi-layered campus emergency notification plan,” said Director of Campus Safety Fran Manfredo, “and we are extremely satisfied with the final product. Obviously, no one wants to think about having to use any type of emergency notification system, but Hamilton has taken the necessary steps to protect our students, faculty and guests in the event of an emergency. Mid-State Communications, as our supplier, was involved from the design stage to final testing and helped to make the process as simple as possible.”
