UPDATE: TEST of UH Alert Communications & Lockdown Procedures Concluded

This concludes the test of the UHM integrated campus-wide UH ALERT emergency communications system.

In an actual emergency, you would be given instructions, updates and, ultimately, the final all-clear notification via emails and text messages (if you have signed up to receive emergency text alerts). Keep your emergency contact information up-to-date at http://www.hawaii.edu/alert.

Emergency information, updates and the all-clear message would also be conveyed via the UHM home page at http://manoa.hawaii.edu/, Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/uhmanoa, and Twitter at http://twitter.com/UHManoa.

In addition to signing up for UH Alert, we encourage our community to read through our Emergency Response Guidebook, which provides emergency response and evacuation procedures for a wide variety of incidents, including hurricanes, natural disasters, fires, active shooter incidents, bomb threats, civil disturbances, and more.

UHM Emergency Exercise & UH Alert Communications Test Tomorrow

UH Manoa will conduct an integrated campus-wide test of its emergency communications capabilities tomorrow, Tuesday, August 20, between 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. (noon). This will be conducted in conjunction with a campus-wide lockdown/shelter-in-place exercise.

The exercise will include a law enforcement response within Les Murakami Stadium on lower campus at UH Mānoa. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other local law enforcement agencies will be on campus to participate. The goal of the exercise is to prepare students, employees, and local law enforcement in the event of a threatening situation on campus. Please continue reading for information on the minimal impact to campus operations.

The exercise will be initiated via the university emergency notification systems (UH Alert text message and email notification) which will be sent between approximately 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. The message will state, "(UHM) This is a TEST of the UHM integrated UH Alert emergency communications system. This is only a TEST." A follow-up message will be sent to indicate that the exercise has concluded.

While it is not required, we hope that you will participate in this lockdown exercise. Upon receiving the initial text message from DPS through UH Alert, please follow the guidelines below:

  • Immediately lock the door and turn off the lights and any source of noise (radios, videos, etc). If you are outdoors, immediately enter the nearest building and shelter in place.
  • If possible, barricade the door with furniture.

  • Once you receive the “all clear” message that the drill has concluded, normal activities may resume.

We are not expecting any impact to operations on upper campus, although there may be slight traffic delays in areas surrounding Les Murakami Stadium on lower campus. Parking will be impacted in small portions of Zone 18 parking near Les Murakami Stadium. Zone 20 parking will be open and we do not expect any issues with parking in that area. If you do not have business on lower campus other than parking, we ask that you avoid the area near the stadium.
