Missouri S&T will conduct a test of its emergency mass notification system at noon Wednesday, Oct. 5.
The test will include a text message to students and employees that reads, “This is a test of the Missouri S&T emergency mass notification system. This is only a test.” Recipients will also receive the message through voice call and email, and it will pop up on computer screens connected to the S&T network.
Missouri S&T’s mass notification system (MNS) is designed to alert the campus community to a potential threat, emergency situation or severe weather. Students, faculty and staff members who are not enrolled in the emergency alert system may sign up online at alert.mst.edu.
Missouri S&T’s Emergency Management Plan, including the university’s emergency response and evacuation procedures, is posted on the University Police website.
