Emergency Alert System Test: Friday, Nov 22, beginning at 4:35 p.m.

Nov. 18, 2013

On Friday, November 22, 2013, beginning at 4:35 p.m. Oberlin College will test its Emergency Alert System. This test is only to verify that the system functions properly in relation to phone numbers (land line, cell, text receiving devices) and e-mail addresses registered with the system at the time of the test. Phone calls will arrive at short intervals due to the trunk capacity of the phone system serving the college.

This will be test only. During an actual emergency an alert will be issued to each phone number and e-mail address that campus community members have elected to store in the system’s database.

In order to reach the community effectively, each student, faculty member, and staff member has the option to register preferred telephone numbers and e-mail addresses into the database serving the system. Individuals are responsible for verifying and updating their personal contact numbers and e-mail addresses as changes occur.

To add or to verify your contact information:

-visit www.oberlin.edu/warn

-click on "Update Your Info" in the upper right hand corner of the page

-Enter your full e-mail address (firstname.lastname@oberlin.edu) and your password, which is your T number, including the capital T (Txxxxxxx).

For more information on the Emergency Alert System or for assistance in entering your contact information, contact Assistant Director of Safety and Security Clif Barnes at cbarnes@oberlin.edu or call 440-775-5776.
