University to test emergency notification systems afternoon of Sept. 28

Between noon and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28, the university will conduct a test of its primary emergency notification systems:

  • CaseWARN. Text and voice messages will be sent to your registered phone number, including cell phones. The system can translate text-to-voice for the visually impaired. Sign up for the CaseWARN system online.
  • Informacast. Campus desk telephones (VoIP system) will receive an audible voice alert, and test messages will be displayed to the screen on the phone.
  • Outdoor loudspeakers. The university has more than 20 outdoor loudspeakers placed around the campus. The speakers will send an alert tone or voice message during an emergency.
  • Website. The main banner space on the university’s homepage,, may display a brief notification during an emergency with key information.
  • Email. A campuswide email may be sent during an emergency with key information.

Please review the updated campus emergency procedures online for more information on what to do before, during and after an emergency. Contact Jason Goodrick, director for emergency management, with any questions by email.
