The campus is scheduled to test its WarnMe emergency notification system at noon on Wednesday, Jan. 26.

In the second of three regular tests for the academic year, the campus will send alerts by text message and email to faculty, staff and students, all of whom are automatically registered to receive alerts through their campus email.

Text messages will be sent to those who have added mobile numbers to their WarnMe contact information and others who registered on their own.

Messages will also be posted to the Everbridge Mobile App and UC Davis' official Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Emergency officials encourage employees and students to add personal email addresses and mobile numbers — up to a total of five for each contact method (including those listed in the UC Davis online directory). Also, you can choose to receive messages for additional groups; for example, a faculty member might choose to receive messages sent to students.

Verify and update your contact information, if need be, on the WarnMe website.

Parents, vendors, contractors and others can sign up to receive text notifications only for the Davis campus by texting UCDALERTS to 888777.

Available to those with a UC Davis email account, the Everbridge Mobile App can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play and set up to receive UC Davis messages.

The Sacramento campus will conduct a simultaneous but separate WarnMe test.
