Emergency Notification Testing

Emergency Management / Environmental Health & Safety

ECSU Administration, University Police and Office of Emergency Management are committed to maintaining a safe environment for students, faculty, staff and guests. To insure that all necessary emergency notifications are received in a timely manner, ECSU has developed an Emergency Notification System. This system includes PIER (e-mail, text messaging), ECSUALERT (campus wide email), and Audible Alert Tones (Sirens) followed by instructions.

The Emergency Notification System requires testing to ensure that the mechanics of the systems are working properly and to maintain proficiency. To ensure this process, test dates have been established. The testing may include all phases of the Emergency Notification System.

Test dates will be publicized in advance, so the campus community and people living and working in neighborhoods surrounding the campus will be aware that the system is being tested on a particular date.

The test dates for the 2013-2014 school year will be the third Wednesday of each month @ 3:00 p.m.
