Only a Test, but a very important one!
The purpose of the test is to evaluate our processes and systems so that we are best prepared to respond to a real emergency event.
UAS will conduct a test of our emergency notification system the morning of April 12, 2013. The timing of this exercise will coincide with an emergency preparedness drill in the Auke Bay area.
The purpose of the test is to evaluate our processes and systems so that we are best prepared to respond to a real emergency event. The UA system is in the process of setting up new technologies for alerting students.
It is very important that your information is up-to-date in the UAS Alert Notification System. Please check your information on the UAS IT Helpdesk page.
Current strategies rely heavily on email and text messaging. These technologies work well in many situations, but they are not always ideal for notifying students in classrooms. This summer, UAS will install classroom notification systems.
During the exercise, you should receive one or more messages and a subsequent “all clear” message.
Faculty: Please note if alerts were received by your class. After the exercise, the campus community will be invited to complete a brief survey.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Health and Safety Manager, Dan Garcia at 796-6077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your consideration and cooperation in this very important test.
