November 18th, 2013 | University Announcement
Thousands of students, faculty and staff are scheduled to receive a test text message in November from Wake Forest University’s emergency notification system.
The text will be sent by the University Police Department at 5 p.m. on Nov. 21 to all who have registered online to receive emergency text messages. Anyone who has not registered may do so by visiting the University’s Wake Ready web site at http://wakeready.wfu.edu/alert-methods/text-alerts. Registration by undergraduates is required. Directions are provided for arranging to receive the messages, including the test message set for November.
The content of the text message will be: “This is a test of the WFU Emergency Mobile Phone Alert System. It is not necessary to reply to this message.”
Wake Forest has several methods for communicating with faculty, staff and students in the event of the emergency. Those used will depend, largely, on the situation. Wake Alert, the University’s emergency notification system, provides alerts and updates through the Wake Alert web site at wakealert.wfu.edu, text messaging, an outdoor warning system, cable TV, e-mail, voice mail, the Wake Alert Twitter account and a recorded message on the Wake Forest weather and emergency phone line at 336.758.5935. The Wake Forest Facebook account also can be used.
Also, all faculty and staff will receive a voice message on their office phone during the test.

Possessing any weapon at Wake Forest remains illegal, despite a new North Carolina law that went into effect October 1.
This week, news organizations are announcing a new state law allowing individuals with concealed handgun permits to leave guns in locked cars at various locations, including state college and university campuses.
The same law allows Wake Forest and other private higher education institutions to continue enforcing their own policies against weapons on campus. Weapons are not permitted on the campus or on any other property owned, used or operated by the University.
The Wake Forest policy regarding weapons is available here.
