NIC will run a test of the new
Alertus system at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 1. The new campus emergency
notification system Alertus allows notifications to take over computer screens
on campus in the event of an emergency. Software has been loaded on all networked
computers on campus that will display emergency instructions during a campus
Please make a point to try to be
near your computer or a computer during the test. Campus Security and
Information Technology staff would like to know if there are problems now that
software implementation is complete. Another test will be performed during
Convocation Week, when faculty have returned to campus. If a computer in a
classroom hasn't been powered on yet since the install, the new software won't
have a completed installation.
Contact the IT Help Desk at Ext. 3280 or firstname.lastname@example.org
if you don't see the alert during the test time.
