ND Alert, the campus comprehensive emergency notification system, will be tested the afternoon of Friday, April 18. The test will be the final of the academic year.
A mid-March test verified that the system rapidly delivered messages to multiple phones and e-mail accounts. The April test is to ensure that this success can be consistently achieved, according to John Affleck-Graves, executive vice president.
As with previous tests, the mass notification system will distribute messages to student, faculty and employee home and office telephones, registered cell phone voice and text services, University e-mail accounts and any additional personal e-mail accounts previously provided.
