Full Volume Seahawk Warning System Test Jan. 28 at Noon

Friday, January 25, 2013

A test of the Seahawk Warning Siren System and UNCW Alert emergency communication tools is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, at noon. UNCW will conduct a full volume test of the siren and related emergency communication tools, including text messaging.

No action is required when the siren sounds during the test. In a real emergency, notifications may be sent in conjunction with the siren that instruct the campus community on what actions to take to ensure their safety. Only those students, faculty and staff who have voluntarily registered their cell phone numbers with the university will receive UNCW Alert emergency text messages and voicemails during the test and in actual emergency situations.

To sign up to receive emergency notifications on your phone:

  • Login to mySeaport
  • Click "Register to Receive UNCW Emergency Texts" on the left-hand side of the page.
  • Enter your personal contact information (which will be secure and will only be used for emergency communications).
  • Click "Submit."

The Seahawk Warning Siren System is an outdoor emergency warning tool and may not be audible inside university buildings. If the siren sounds in an actual emergency, immediately take shelter indoors, seek further information and wait for an all-clear notification.
