TOPEKA, Kan. -- At 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, Washburn University conducted an official test of iAlert, the university’s emergency notification system.

Washburn University’s iAlert emergency notification system is designed to warn Washburn students, faculty, staff and emergency contacts about emergencies on campus.

To sign up for iAlert, go to Washburn.edu/ialert.

Emergency notification channels tested include text messaging, automated phone calls, e-mail messages, Washburn’s website homepage washburn.edu and Facebook sites. Participation in the iAlert system is voluntary. It is the responsibility of the individual to register for the free service and to keep the contact information up to date.

“iAlert significantly enhances our ability to maintain a safe academic environment for staff, faculty and students,” said Chris Enos, sergeant, university police.

Washburn said Thursday's test went smoothly.
