AlertVU test scheduled for March 23

Vanderbilt University Office of Emergency Management will conduct a test of the AlertVU emergency notification system on Thursday, March 23, at 2:30 p.m. 

AlertVU rapidly sends messages in the event of an imminent threat or danger to the Vanderbilt community. 

All Vanderbilt University and medical center students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in the system using their university and medical center email addresses. It is also recommended to register other contact points, such as cell or home phone numbers or personal email accounts, to receive AlertVU messages when away from Vanderbilt email accounts.  

Before the test, it is recommended that all staff, faculty and students review and update their contact information to ensure AlertVU message delivery.
