The Office of Emergency Management and the Police and Public Safety Department will conduct a full test of the NinerAlert system from approximately 10 to 11 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 27. All methods of alert notification will be used. This includes text messaging, email, Alertus technology (on-campus screen takeover), LiveSafe and social media.
The test message will read:
NinerAlert: This is a test of the UNC Charlotte Emergency Alert System. This is only a test.
- Students, faculty, staff and sponsored guests
Before the test, log in to Banner Self Service to ensure your cell phone information is correct; how to add or update your information. Note: Make sure you are updating the “emergency text phone number” in Banner.
Visit the Emergency Management website to review information on how to subscribe to text alerts.
Following the alert message, the on-campus sirens will be tested. A voice message on the sirens will announce it is a test.
In the event of an actual emergency, the test will be canceled and appropriate instructions will be sent via NinerAlerts.
Direct questions about the University’s alert system or the test to Kevin Martin, preparedness coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-687-8890.
