Monthly Safety Reminder: Update Your Contact Information

  • February 5th, 2018

On the first Wednesday of each month (unless inclement weather is expected), the University tests its emergency notification systems, including UA Alerts, the public address system and digital signage. In addition to notification tests, the University provides monthly safety tips and information to help the UA community be prepared in different types of emergency situations.

This month, you are reminded to make sure your contact information on myBama is updated so that you can receive all UA Alerts. Instructions on updating your contact information can be found here.

You can also receive information about emergency situations on campus, including severe weather, by downloading the new UA Safety App for IOS and Android devices.

New Desktop Notifications Mean Faster UA Alerts

Alertus Desktop Notification sends full screen, pop-up notifications to computers that have the software installed and are on the UA network when an emergency occurs that impacts the campus. To download the Alertus Desktop Notification software, go to myBama, click on the Tech tab and scroll to the bottom of the screen. You will see a link to “Download Alertus Desktop Notification.”
