IUP will test its Emergency Notification System on Wednesday, September 13, at 10:00 a.m.

The test will include text messaging, voice calls, email, and desktop alerts. Testing of the public address system will come at a later date.

The email will go to everyone in the @iup.edu email system and will include information on how to sign up or verify information on IUP’s emergency notification system. This system is reserved for critical safety and security messages, including weather emergencies. Step-by-step instructions to update information or to register are available on the Register for Notification - Emergency Notification System - Emergency Management - IUP page. This page also provides information on registering for the free Everbridge app on a mobile device.

Parents, family members, and community members who wish to receive emergency messages are welcome to do so. To keep the system running as efficiently as possible, anyone wishing to be added to the system should text “iupalert” to 888777.
