LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Bucknell University is testing its comprehensive emergency notification system today, March 31.

The University conducted the first full test at 9 a.m., with the system successfully delivering messages over a campus-wide public address speaker system and to text, e-mail, and phone contacts listed by students, faculty, and staff.

The Office of Public Safety will continue to test the loud-speaker system throughout the morning and will conduct a full test of all delivery methods again at 9 p.m.

Emergency notification test
The test text being delivered through the various methods says, "TEST. This is a test of Bucknell's Emergency Notification System. If this was an ALERT more information would follow. This is only a TEST."

During the drills, members of the campus community are being asked to respond to the notifications through phone, e-mail, or text messaging. Instructions for responding are included in the original messages.

Members of the campus community are encouraged to log into myBucknell to add or update emergency contact information.
