The University of Hawaiʻi System will conduct a test of the UH Alert emergency notification system on Wednesday, April 18, 10 a.m. The test will involve all 10 UH campuses and include all students, faculty and staff who have registered to receive the alerts.
The UH Alert emergency notification system alerts the university community in the event of a natural, health or civil emergency. It includes automated emergency messages sent to all students, faculty and staff via email and text message alerts sent to students, faculty and staff who have signed up to receive them on their mobile phone.
The UH Alert system is only used in urgent situations that may impact the health and safety of members of the UH community and closures of whole campuses. It is tested once a semester to ensure that the system is functioning properly.
UH students, faculty and staff are encouraged to register for the text message alerts or review and update their information if already registered prior to the test on April 18.
See the UH Alert website to register or review previously submitted information.
