Temple University Alert

Temple University alert: This is a test of the emergency notification system. No action is required.

Temple is conducting a test of its TUalert and TUsiren system today (Thursday, April 9) between 11 a.m. and noon.

The test includes activation of the Main Campus siren and a TUalert message. The TUalert message is sent by voice and text message to all cell phones registered to receive TUalerts, and an email is sent to all Temple email accounts.

In a real emergency, when you hear the siren, you should Shelter-in-Place. “Shelter-in-place” means to seek immediate protection indoors rather than face uncertainty or dangerous conditions outside. If possible, find an interior room with no windows. Do not evacuate.

To register for TUalert: Confirm your contact information through TUportal, and be sure your cell phone number is registered. For additional information, visit www.temple.edu/tuready

This test is part of Temple’s emergency communication policy (04.61.01) and protocol.
