On April 11 the University of Portland public safety department will test the campus mass notification system. In light of recent tragedies, public safety encourages all participants in the mass notification system to take the opportunity to consider how you would respond in an actual emergency and to practice lockdown procedures for where you will be located on campus during the test. The system will test newly installed classroom telephones, which will broadcast an emergency alert, and will send messages to registered cellphones, SMS text, and email addresses.
We encourage all campus community members to view the “Shots Fired” and “Surviving an Active Shooter” videos on the Public Safety website.
