The WSU Office of Emergency Management will be conducting the fall semester test of the WSU Alert Pullman system on the Pullman campus Wednesday, September 29th at 12:00 noon.

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. Look for areas in which you might shelter in place and be aware of exits around you. During a real event, 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 has developed the WSU Alert Pullman 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.

Your consideration, cooperation and patience of students, faculty and staff during the test is greatly appreciated.

Questions can be directed to the WSU Office of Emergency Management at 509-335-7471 or emergencymanagement@wsu.edu. All WSU Pullman students, staff and faculty can subscribe to WSU Alert Pullman. Visit myWSU and register/update your emergency contact information.
