Campuswide emergency notification test set for Sept. 25

UW-Eau Claire will conduct a campuswide test of its emergency notification system between 9 and 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25.

The test will include the following notification methods:
  • a text message to cell phones that have been registered in the new cell phone notification system 
  • a pop-up message on all university-owned computers, including those in offices, labs and classrooms
  • an e-mail to all students, faculty and staff
  • an announcement on the UW-Eau Claire home page.
The test will help university officials determine how an alert will impact the campus and communication infrastructure. Following the test, faculty, staff and students will be asked to complete a brief Web survey to provide feedback regarding the emergency notification system.

UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students who have not yet subscribed to the emergency cell phone notification system are encouraged to do so before the campuswide test. See the Emergency Information Web page for information about how to subscribe.
