Fairbanks campus to test emergency notification system
Updated 9/26/16, 2:10 p.m.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks will test its emergency notification system in Fairbanks on Thursday, Sept. 29. At some point during the day, UAF employees and students will receive one or more test messages. Visitors to campus may also see or hear test messages. All test messages will clearly note that they are part of the emergency notification test.
The test messages will come in a variety of ways:
- Pop-up messages on university computers
- Calls or voice mail messages on campus telephones
- Calls and text messages to mobile phones
- Announcements on loudspeakers
- Messages on yellow Alertus emergency beacons
- Social media
When you receive the messages, make note of when, where and how you received them. The messages will also ask you to complete a survey about how you received information during the test. Please take a moment to complete the survey, as it helps improve our emergency notification system.
