WFU will test text/phone alert system today

Wake Alert logoWake Forest will conduct a test today (Dec. 1) of the University’s text/phone alert system for campus emergencies. The test of the emergency alert system will occur at 5:30 p.m.

During testing, the alert system will send a text message to students, faculty and staff who have registered their cell phones with the University.

The alert system will leave a voice mail message on the office phones of faculty and staff who have not registered a cell phone. (This is not a test of the University’s campus-wide voice mail system.)

The following message will be received: This is a TEST of the WFU Emergency Mobile Phone Alert System. It is not necessary to reply to this message.

The text/phone alert system is part of the Wake Alert emergency notification system at the University.  For details, please visit

If you have not registered your cell phone, please go online to WIN and register. Registration by undergraduate students is required. The University encourages faculty, staff and graduate and professional school students to register. Instructions for registration can be found at:
