IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

HELP US TEST THE CAL U ALERT SYSTEM

 

A TEST of the CAL U ALERT System is scheduled for Thursday, September 20, 2012.

The test will occur between 11:45 a.m. and noon.

 

The Cal U Alert System has been expanded to deliver:

  • Text alerts to registered participants;
  • E-mail to all campus accounts;
  • Updates to the Cal U website, www.calu.edu.

These methods of communication will keep you informed in case of an emergency on or near campus.

 

DURING THE TEST:

Text and e-mail messages will announce that we are conducting a test, and you will be directed to the Cal U website. PLEASE VISIT THE WEBSITE, www.calu.edu, so we can determine the effect of increased traffic during an emergency.

 

In an actual emergency, the Cal U website typically will be your most complete source for information. Check the “NEWS” carousel at the bottom of the homepage for emergency information and updates. (In certain cases, emergency information may replace the entire homepage.)
