The campus will conduct a test of the UMass Amherst Alerts Emergency Notification System (ENS) on Thursday, Aug. 10 after 2:30 p.m.
This test is part of the university's continuing effort to test, evaluate and improve its ability to provide timely and effective emergency notification and warnings during a campus emergency. The ENS test will include the UMass Amherst Alerts emergency text messaging, broadcast e-mail and outdoor warning sirens.
Reminder: UMass Emergency alerts (text messages and e-mails) are designed to work in tandem with the outdoor warning sirens. When a siren sounds, please check your phone for a text message update on the emergency.
