UH urging sign-up for emergency text messaging

Advertiser Staff

The University of Hawai'i announced plans yesterday for a second test of the emergency text message notification system that has been implemented for use during crisis on or near the university's 10 campuses and urged more students to sign up.

UH has been soliciting voluntary sign ups of faculty, staff and students to expand the reach of the emergency messaging system since late February. The next test will be conducted this month.

An initial test of the emergency messaging system was conducted among faculty and staff on Feb. 20. The April test will be targeted to include students. Currently the sign up for emergency notifications is only available to those who have a UH username and password. Members of the UH community can sign up online at www.hawaii.edu/alert.
