UW Alert System Test Successful
October 24, 2011 — More than 12,200 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 email 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.
