University conducting NinerAlert test Nov. 27

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.

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 kevin.martin@uncc.edu or call 704-687-8890.
