Emergency Alert System Drill Thursday 09-27-07

Posted Sept-20-2007

The clock tower bells will be ringing from 10:45 to 11:00 AM on Thursday, September 27, as part of a test of Humboldt State’s new Emergency Alert System.

This will be a drill, and there is NO real emergency.

Temporary “Test Today” signage will be placed in prominent locations around the campus. There will also be cellular text test messages sent to registered cell phones (register your cellular number via the WebReg system off the Quick Links section of the HSU homepage; call the Help Desk at 826-4357 if you need assistance.).

In the event that there is a real emergency, the bell-ringing, text messaging, and signage would be three of the ways in which the University would alert the campus community of an emergency situation. The appropriate response by the public is to be cautious, and to seek more information.

The best places to turn for additional information when there is an emergency alert are:

Please try to access these sources of information during Thursday’s drill, so that the campus administration can evaluate the system’s capacity and make improvements as appropriate.

Please visit Humboldt State’s Emergency Management webpage for more information about preparing yourself for an emergency.

Again, the bell ringing, signage, and text messaging at 10:45 to 11:00 AM on Thursday September 27 are a test of HSU's emergency alert system. This will be a drill, and there is NO real emergency
