Miami University students can expect a text and email alert from the Emergency Notification System 1:05 p.m. Monday.
The messages are meant to test the capability of the emergency system.
According to Director of News and Communications Claire Wagner, the text or email will have “Test” as the subject line, and will prompt the reader to note the time in which the message was received. However, readers should not reply to the text or email.
Several university members will receive a survey along with the message. Wagner noted that students should complete the survey within two days.
Wagner said all members of Miami University are listed by email in the Emergency Notification System, e2Campus. Members must add their cell phone numbers to their e2Campus account to receive text alerts. Members can update their contact information by visiting miamioh.edu/ens.
