At about 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 23, Duke will conduct a test of the various communication tools of the DukeALERT notification system. This event is part of a periodic test of the DukeALERT communication tools that will also help raise awareness about how Duke community members will be notified of an emergency. The test is conducted once during the spring and fall semesters and once during the summer, when the audience is significantly different with various camps and programs on campus. Duke will also test the new alert bar that will automatically highlight emergency news on websites across the university. Emergency text messages will be sent to all students and any faculty or staff members who have registered to receive them. Duke faculty and staff can sign up for this service at: https://sms.oit.duke.edu/register
