Police to test UNL Alert

UNL Police will conduct a test of the UNL Alert system at about 10:15 a.m. Sept. 3. The message will begin with “This is a TEST of UNL Alert.”

September is National Preparedness Month and Gov. Dave Heineman has proclaimed this month Nebraska Preparedness Month.

UNL Alert is a mass notification system that can rapidly send messages to campus in the event of an emergency or severe weather situation. UNL Alert sends text messages and emails to the device and address that users designate. Alerts also will appear simultaneously on the following UNL-related Twitter accounts: @PrepareUNL, @UNLPD, @UNLNews and @UNLincoln.

To receive UNL Alerts, students, faculty and staff must register by clicking here.

In the event of an actual emergency, the test will be postponed. Messages from UNL Alert without “This is a TEST of UNL Alert” should be considered a real-world message.
