Campus will test UH Alert emergency communications tomorrow

UH Manoa will conduct an integrated campus-wide test of its emergency communications capabilities tomorrow, Friday, October 16, between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m..

The following will occur:

  1. Test EMAIL messages will go out to all UH Mānoa (including JABSOM/UHCC) students, faculty, staff and vicinity contacts.
  2. Test TEXT messages will be sent to those who have signed up to receive emergency TEXT messages.  Sign up for emergency TEXT messages at www.hawaii.edu/alert.
  3. The official UH Mānoa home page at http://manoa.hawaii.edu and social media accounts will be updated to reflect the test (follow us on Facebook and Twitter @uhmanoa). UH Mānoa Department of Public Safety social media accounts will also be updated to reflect this test (follow us on Facebook and Twitter @uhmanoasafety).

All members of the UH Mānoa community are urged to sign up to receive emergency TEXT alerts (if you have not already done so) by going online to the website at http://www.hawaii.edu/alert.  If you have already signed up, log in at http://www.hawaii.edu/alert to ensure that your contact information is up-to-date.  You may test your cell phone information by sending a test message from the website to your phone. If you are having technical trouble with UH Alert, see the article at http://www.hawaii.edu/askus/1363 or send an email to em-info@lists.hawaii.edu.

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.  Visit https://manoa.hawaii.edu/dps/emergency-management/ to download this guide.

Thank you in advance of the October 16, 2020 test of UH Alert.
