UW-Madison Police Department strives to keep the campus informed about important information, especially during an emergency or crisis. Many different avenues are used to keep you informed — from Twitter and Facebook to text messages on your cell phones.

One of the key ways to keep the campus informed during an emergency is through our UW-Madison WiscAlerts system. WiscAlerts use text messaging, email, Twitter and Facebook messages, and via messages on the UW-Madison and UWPD homepage.

We want to make sure that WiscAlerts is working properly. To help check the system, a test message will be sent out on Tuesday, December 19 at approximately 12 noon. You will see this test message in an email to your @wisc.edu email account, in a text message, on Twitter and Facebook, on www.wisc.edu, and on a push notification if you use the WiscGuardian app.

If there is an active emergency situation during the scheduled test time, the test message will be rescheduled for Wednesday, December 20.
