UC Davis’ WarnMe emergency alerting service will be put to the test on Thursday just before noon.
Emergency officials urge faculty, staff and students to update their contact information with WarnMe at warnme.ucdavis.edu. They will be sending out test messages to over 87,000 work and personal e-mail addresses, 26,500 SMS text devices and roughly 1,000 pagers.
In an actual emergency, messages would inform recipients of the nature of the emergency and provide further instructions.
