Emergency Notification System Test - Feb. 8th @ 11:00 a.m.
A test of USF's Emergency Notification Systems at the Tampa and St. Petersburg locations will be conducted on Wednesday, February 8th, at 11 a.m. (USF Sarasota-Manatee will conduct a separate test.)
The test message will be sent via the following emergency communication channels:
- MoBull Messenger on USF Tampa and St. Petersburg campuses (text messaging).
- Digital displays across the Tampa campus
- www.usf.edu and www.usfsp.edu
- Desktop Alerts on the Tampa and St. Petersburg campuses (includes faculty/staff computers and classrooms and labs where computers are maintained by USF IT and USF Health IS. Note: The desktop alert must be manually installed on USF-owned Macs purchased prior to summer 2014 or Macs not managed by USF IT. Mac owners can submit a request to have the software installed by emailing email@example.com.
- The exterior public announcement system on the Tampa Campus (loudspeakers and strobe lights are intended for outside areas, NOT to reach inside buildings or facilities).
It is anticipated the testing will take less than five minutes and no significant disruption in campus activities is expected. All systems will state that the activation is only a test. To dismiss the alert on your desktop, click on the "Acknowledge" button at the bottom of the screen and you will be able to continue your work.
Faculty and students please note: Most technology classrooms and open use computer labs (i.e., Library computers) have been installed with the new desktop alert system. The emergency alert will appear on computers and projection screens in use during the test and/or an actual emergency.
