LEWISBURG, Pa. — Bucknell University will test its comprehensive emergency notification system on Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, the University will send two sets of messages to text, e-mail and phone contacts provided by students, faculty and staff. A similar message will be broadcast over a campus-wide public address speaker system that will be heard in neighboring residential areas on both sides of Route 15.

The test text being delivered through the various methods will say, "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 tests, members of the campus community will be asked to respond to the notifications through phone, e-mail or text messaging. Instructions for responding will be included in the original messages.

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