Temple will test TU-Alert system on Friday

Temple’s Campus Safety Services sent out an e-mail today announcing that a test of the TU-Alert system will take place on Friday. Here is the partial text from the e-mail:

As a part of Emergency Preparedness at Temple University, a test of the TU Alert system will be conducted on Friday, October 2, 2009, beginning at 4 p.m.

TU-Alert notification is one component of Temple University’s Emergency Notification plan.

A TU Alert will be sent when a determination is made that immediate action is required on the part of the campus community because of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff on campus. Testing the TU-Alert system is a critical part of ensuring its effectiveness.

Is everyone signed up for alerts?
