JMU to Test Emergency Response Communication Systems Sunday, Nov. 4

From: Public Affairs

October 31, 2007

Students, Faculty and Staff:

JMU will conduct a test of the comprehensive emergency response communication systems on Sunday, November 4, at 3 p.m. At this time Madison Alert, the outdoor siren and PA system, will be tested with a siren and audible message that will be broadcast across the system, a blast e-mail message will be sent and a test text message/voice message will be sent to the cell phones of all individuals who have enrolled for emergency notification through either e-campus (students) or J-ESS (faculty and staff).

If you have not already enrolled to receive emergency notifications via your cell phone, please log in to e-campus (students) or J-ESS (faculty and staff) and provide your cell phone information and authorize its use by the University for emergency notification. Please note that you must explicitly authorize JMU to contact you via your cell phone for emergencies. If you have not authorized JMU to contact you via cell phone for emergencies, even though your cell phone information is in e-campus or J-ESS, you will not receive emergency notifications. Instructions are available via e-campus and J-ESS tutorials available on the respective login pages.

For more information regarding the emergency response communication systems and other safety information at JMU, visit the Public Safety website at http://www.jmu.edu/pubsafety and click on the Emergency Procedures Training

A survey will be sent via e-mail following the test for you to provide feedback regarding the test. Please take a few minutes and complete the survey.

Thanks,

Lee Shifflett

Chief of Police
