HSU Alert Test

HSU Campus
On Wednesday, March 26th at 11:50 am, the campus will test the HSU Alert Emergency Notification System.

No evacuations are necessary.

HSU Alert pushes information to the campus community and alerts individuals that an emergency condition exists that threatens their health and safety; and to provide protective action recommendations.

The best places to go to after receiving an HSU Alert to get more information on what's going on are:

826-INFO (4636)
KHSU 90.5 FM

The multimodal methods being tested are:

* HSU Alert will send text messages to people who have registered their cell phone number in myHumboldt Emergency Text Message Number contacts.

* HSU Alert will also send an email to active HSU students and employees alerting them of the test.

* The Emergency Public Address System will sound across campus between 11:50 to 11:55 a.m. The campus community may hear electronic alert high-low tones, a spoken test message, and a steady “all clear” tone.

* There will be white strobe lights flashing at the rooftop locations of the loud speakers.

* There will be changes on the HSU homepage

* Announcements on KHSU 90.5 FM.

* Temporary “Test Today” sandwich board signage will be placed in prominent locations in and around the campus.

Treading Water Screening with Director Jesse Dizard

Siemens Hall
"Treading Water" is about underground aquifers and what some have called the impending threats to California's water resources in the form of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking").

This movie explores the impeding threat to our water security, based on interviews with experts and other community members to construct a narrative detailing the critical role that groundwater has come to play in California's economy.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the film's director Jesse Dizard.
