(April 19, 2012) -- There will be a test of the UTSA Emergency Notification System (ENS) at 3 p.m., Wednesday, April 25. Registered users of the system will receive a text message and a corresponding email. The test is part of ongoing procedures to ensure and enhance UTSA emergency communications.

The test monitors the university's ability to communicate with students, faculty and staff who registered for the UTSA Emergency Notification System on the ASAP online information system.

System users who opted for a voice message in lieu of a text message will receive an automated phone call. Those registered for the service should note whether they receive a message or not during the test; if not, contact Emergency Management.

The ENS is the primary means to relay emergency information within the UTSA community. If an emergency occurs, a message would contain important instructions regarding safety measures and protective actions.
