Emergency notification system, AlertSU, scheduled for testing this afternoon

Today, Stanford is conducting a test of its emergency notification system, AlertSU. This afternoon, a test message will be sent to all staff, faculty and students through all contact points listed in Axess and StanfordYou.

With the AlertSU system in place, Stanford can send important announcements via phone, e-mail or text message during an emergency situation. Anyone who has problems receiving the alert message on any device should complete the follow-up survey to report which messages were not delivered properly. A link to the online survey is at http://alertsu.stanford.edu.

University employees can confirm or update their contact information in StanfordYou, at http://stanfordyou.stanford.edu, by clicking on the link "Maintain your directory information." If a home phone number is listed, anyone at home during the time of the test will get the alert.

The message will be for test purposes only and will not require a response.
