WVU performed a test of the Emergency Alert System at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014.
If you believe you are signed up, but did not receive a text, please contact the ITS Service Desk at email@example.com or call 304-293-4444. The system is activated when there is an immediate threat on campus (Emergency Alert) or when weather conditions require a change in University scheduling (Weather Alert). Users can also add additional cell phones, for example spouse’s or parent’s, to their accounts. The service is provided by e2Campus and managed by the University Police, with technical support from University Relations-Web.
There is a new option to sign up from your phone by texting. You can text 79516 with the letters WVUAlert and automatically register your phone to receive a text alert if you are a faculty or staff member. Students will automatically be enrolled if they have provided a current cell phone number in STAR. If a student did not receive a text, they can also write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current students are automatically subscribed to receive WVU emergency messages.
Faculty and staff should go to http://emergency.wvu.edu/signup to sign up for the alert. (NOTE: If off-campus, you will be asked to supply your MASTERID.)
If you need to update your information you can sign into e2Campus.
Watch a tutorial with with directions.
