UW Text Alert Test Successful

March 25, 2011

More than 12,800 University of Wyoming students, faculty and staff members received a text message on their cell phones within minutes after it was sent Thursday in a system-wide test of the university's text notification system, UW Alert.

An e-mail message was also sent to all exchange users. In the event of a real emergency, those signed up for the UW Alert system would have received specific instructions.

The text alert system (www.uwyo.edu/uwalert), one of many safety initiatives in place at UW, provides a means to quickly reach as many members of the university community as possible.

For more information, call the Information Technology Helpdesk at (307) 766-4357 option 1, or e-mail userhelp@uwyo.edu.
