UCF’s ongoing testing and training for potential emergency situations on campus include ensuring that the university has a variety of communication tools to provide critical information to students, faculty, staff, family members and the public.

UCF will test several of those tools on Friday afternoon, Jan. 29.

Outdoor sirens, which emit a tone followed by a voice response, will be tested at noon.

Test emergency text messages and e-mails will be sent between 1 and 2 p.m. Messages should be received by all students and faculty and staff members who already have updated cell phone information on file through the MyUCF Web site and who have not opted out of receiving emergency messages.
