ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
I am pleased to announce the campus now has in place an additional system to provide notification in the event of an emergency. The new notification system allows official emergency announcements to be sent to your phone via text and voice messages. On a periodic basis, this system will be tested and you will receive test messages on your phone. Participation in this program is voluntary; however I encourage everyone to sign-up and participate in this important element of our campus emergency services programs. You can find instructions on how to register to participate in the emergency notification program at http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/emergencyphonereg.
For additional information regarding emergency preparedness, please go to http://emergency.ucsd.edu Should you have any questions regarding the new Emergency Notification System, please contact me at (858) 534-3659, or Phillip Van Saun, Manager of Emergency Services, at (858) 534-1064.
