The WSU Office of Emergency Management will be conducting the fall semester test of the WSU Alert system on the Pullman campus Thursday, September 27th at 12:05 p.m. Faculty, staff and students associated with the Pullman campus who have signed up for emergency notifications will receive text messages, phone calls, emails, and desktop alerts on select computers which will be clearly identified as a test. This test will include the campus outdoor warning sirens, which are designed to warn people on campus to take shelter and seek further information from other WSU Alert resources such as alert.wsu.edu.
During the test, please consider the actions you might take in a real emergency. During a real event, WSU will activate appropriate components of the system to alert people of the situation. Individuals should also assess their individual circumstances and act to take appropriate safety precautions.
Washington State University places the safety and security of its students, employees, and visitors as its highest priority. WSU has developed the WSU Alert 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.
