At 10:15 on Thursday, October 15 UFV will test UFV Alert: the emergency notification system designed to keep you and the UFV community connected with key information during an emergency or severe weather closure.
During the test, you will receive a message on your phone or device if you have registered with UFV Alert.
People in CEP Building A will also receive an audio alert test in all rooms and areas in this building at 10:15 on October 15. No evacuation is necessary. This a test of the building’s emergency intercom system.
