Emergency notification system test on Tuesday
September 3, 2021 6:01 AM

Dear campus community member,

The Urbana campus will test its emergency notification system at 10:05 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 7.

All campus community members are encouraged to sign up for Illini-Alert text messages to receive prompt notification of campus emergencies. You can do so by visiting http://emergency.illinois.edu. Contact information for friends and relatives may be added at http://go.illinois.edu/illinialertmyfamily. Anyone else can sign up by texting "IlliniAlert" to 226787.

The test of the Illini-Alert system will use all of the communication capabilities of the emergency notification system:

  • Email messages will be sent to all active faculty and staff members and students with campus email addresses.
  • Text messages will be sent to those people who have registered their cellphone numbers.  
  • A message will be sent to the Illini-Alert Twitter account (http://twitter.com/illinialert).
  • A message will appear on all digital signs connected to the Illini-Alert system.

The test does not require any response; evaluators will be able to monitor the speed and distribution rates of the messaging. Thank you for your cooperation.

Assistant Director of Emergency Management
