UCF’s preparations for potential emergency situations include regular tests of the communication tools that provide critical information to students, staff and faculty members, and the public.
Several of those UCF Alert communication tools will be tested Wednesday, March 8. This semester’s testing is timed with Safe Knight Week, an annual opportunity to learn about self-care, violence prevention and emergency preparedness.
A listing of Safe Knight Week events is here.
In preparation for Wednesday’s Alert testing, students and faculty and staff members are encouraged to log in to myUCF and review their UCF Alert settings to ensure that contact information (email, cell phone number, and mobile provider) is correct.
The emergency communication functions that will be tested Wednesday include:
The UCF Alert testing also will include WUCF-89.9 FM, social media and HEARO emergency radios that the university provides many employees who assist with emergency responses.
