The WSU Office of Emergency Management conducted a spring semester test of the WSUAlert system Tuesday, February 23rd, at 12:05 p.m. More than 23,000 Faculty, staff and students associated with the Pullman campus received text messages, phone calls, and emails as part of this test, which also included the campus outdoor warning sirens.

Washington State University places the safety and security of its students, employees, and visitors as its highest priority. WSU has developed the WSUAlert System to disseminate official information via email, text messages, telephone, loudspeakers, Alert Website, and other means to notify the campus population of emergencies or threatening situations. This can include such events as inclement weather, violent actions, and gas leaks. When such events occur, WSU will activate appropriate components of the system to alert people that they should be Aware of the situation, Assess their individual circumstances and Act to take appropriate safety precautions. WSU encourages students, faculty and staff to be personally aware of developing incidents, assessing each emergency individually, and taking actions to ensure the safety of all.

All WSU students, staff and faculty can subscribe to WSUAlerts. Visit myWSU and register/update your emergency contact information. See for more information.
