Emergency Communications Test

Tuesday, September 19, 2023 | 9:50 AM

WashU will test its emergency communication system at 9:55 a.m. on Tuesday, September 19, 2023. The test ensures WashU can effectively communicate with the community in an emergency. During the test, WashUAlerts will send emails to @wustl.edu addresses, voice calls to campus phones and cell phones and text messages to cell phones. Emails will come from WashUAlerts@wustl.edu and voice calls/text messages from 314-935-9000.

The drill will also include testing of WashU’s yellow Alertus beacons, Voice over Fire Alarm systems, cable TV overrides (Danforth Campus only), the WUSTL app and the WashU Safe app.

WashU students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to enter or update their contact information via Workday and WebSTAC/SIS.
