The UNL Police Department will conduct a test of the new UNL Alert system between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Jan. 31. The message will begin with "This is a TEST of UNL Alert."

To receive UNL Alerts, you must be registered for the latest version that launched Jan. 17. Register by entering contact information at https://unlalert.unl.edu/unlalert.

In the event of an actual emergency, the UNL Alert test will be postponed. Messages without "This is a TEST of UNL Alert" should be considered a message about an actual emergency.

The new system sends alerts via email and texts, eliminating the time issues created by making multiple phone calls via cell and landline. It also meets the needs of most users, while assuring that in an emergency or snow closing, tens of thousands of phone messages are not initiated and slow down the messaging process.
