Test of Emergency Notification System – June 25 at 11 a.m.

It is anticipated the testing will take less than five minutes and all systems will state that it is only a test.

A test of USF’s Emergency Notification System will be conducted on Wednesday, June 25, at 11 a.m.  A message will be sent via the following emergency communication channels:

- MoBull Messenger on all USF Campuses (text messaging).
- Digital displays across the Tampa Campus.
- Desktop Alerts on the Tampa Campus (includes faculty/staff computers and classrooms and labs where computers are maintained by USF IT and USF Health IS.
- The exterior public announcement system on the Tampa Campus (loudspeakers and strobe lights are intended for outside areas, NOT to reach inside buildings or facilities).

It is anticipated the testing will take less than five minutes and no significant disruption in campus activities is expected. All systems will state that the activation is only a test. To dismiss the alert on your desktop, click on the "Acknowledge" button at the bottom of the screen and you will be able to continue your work.

Faculty and students please note: Most technology classrooms and open use computer labs (i.e., Library computers) have been installed with the new desktop alert system. The emergency alert will appear on computers and projection screens in use during the test and/or an actual emergency.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sandy Lovins, Vice President of Administrative Services,, 974-8063.
