Truman to Test Emergency Notification System Nov. 9


Truman will conduct a test of the emergency notification system at 10:45 a.m. Nov. 9.
Students, faculty and staff who have signed up to receive Truman emergency alert text notifications will get a TruAlert text and email message letting them know it is a test. Those that have not signed up for emergency text messaging can do so through TruView.
To sign up, log in to TruView and click on the “Truman” tab. Click the “Update Emergency Text Messaging Information” under “Update and View My Personal Information” (lower right screen). A maximum of three phones can be registered to receive texts. Confirm information in the same manner.
In addition to text and email messages, an emergency alert will be displayed on all Truman computer systems (Windows and Mac) where the Alertus software has been installed. This should include nearly all workstations on campus. There will also be alerts sent to digital signs in Violette Hall, Magruder Hall, Ophelia Parrish and the Health Sciences Building, to the Truman channel on the cable televisions in residence halls, and to classrooms with the Truman touch-pad control system installed.
The campus is also encouraged to review the emergency procedures. It is important the entire community is familiar with these procedures to understand how to respond appropriately in several emergency situations.
