Please be advised that DPSS will test the U-M Emergency Alert system on Friday, Sept. 21 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Members of the community may receive up to three messages during the testing period. DPSS is working to integrate new capabilities, which is why there may be up to three messages during this period. There is no action required by recipients.

The test will be sent through all methods of the alert system, including the Michigan App, U-M Gateway, DPSS website, interior building digital signs, Twitter, Facebook, RSS feeds, email, phone calls and text messages. The test will be canceled if the system is activated for a real emergency.

DPSS and Information and Technology Services are partners in providing the emergency alerts functionality. The test will confirm system operations readiness.
