CatAlert System Test Log

Twice a year, usually in September and January, the Associate Vice President for Administrative and Facilities Services or the Vice Provost for Student Affairs will initiate (or authorize the initiation of) an announced test alert message for the CatAlert Emergency Notification System. The goal of these tests is to validate that the system is working as designed (including that at least 95% of all messages have been sent). The following details a record of such tests, including the date, time, a description and whether the test was announced or not.
