The Tippecanoe Country Emergency Management Agency will be testing new siren programming updates this Saturday, March 30 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The sirens will be activated multiple times during the testing window, but each activation should be a short burst to ensure proper functionality.
Part of the new programming includes the reduction of the previous 22 zones to 12 zones. Purdue University's seven sirens will remain its own zone.

Most of our meat comes from right here at Purdue. We raise cattle, swine, sheep, and poultry just west of town at our Purdue Animal Sciences farm. The animals are bred, fed, harvested, and processed by Purdue students and staff to bring you fresh, high-quality, locally-grown meat. Look for the labels “Locally Grown” to know you are eating meat raised right here.
We age our beef in the cooler for an average of 14 days before it is cut, packaged, and available for sale to you. The extra time spent aging causes our steaks and roasts to be more tender and have a stronger flavor than what you would find at a common supermarket. Try it, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Purdue Group Purchases
We give a 10% discount to all Purdue groups and student organizations when they purchase meat from us. This can be anything from a special picnic in your department to the weekly meals that are prepared in a Greek house. We will also accept an internal Purdue account number for the purchase.
Proceeds from our meat sales go towards offsetting the costs of educating Purdue students about the food animal industry. These expenses include the cost of animals, staff, and equipment. We are the only functioning university meat lab in the state of Indiana, and we feel it is important to educate our future leaders on the production of safe, high-quality meat to feed our growing world. When you purchase meat from the Boilermaker Butcher Block, you are getting a great product and supporting a great endeavor!
Located in Smith Hall, Room 170, the Butcher Block is open from 2 – 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The Butcher Block accepts credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard & Discover).

At 5 p.m. on March 29, AutoVue, the application used to view Microstation CAD files (as well as other file types), will be removed from all Physical Facilities computers.
The removal should occur in the background with no interruption to users. If you need to view Microstation drawings and do not already have Microstation installed on your computer, you may request to have Bentley View installed to view these file types. Please contact email@example.com with your user and computer names (1074-0xxxx) to request the Bentley View Microstation file viewer.
For eDocs users, when AutoVue is removed, Windows Photo Viewer (already installed on all PCs) will be used to view .tiff image files.
Any issues occurring due to this change should be reported to the ITaP customer service center at 4-4000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
