Tulane University currently is operating under normal conditions.

Emergency Communications Test - Friday, Dec. 19, 2014

At noon on Friday, Dec. 19, Tulane will conduct a test of its text and email notifications, its outdoor warning sirens and the ALERTUS emergency notification software. Text and email messages will be sent to all users. The sirens will only affect the uptown campus. ALERTUS will activate only for those users on New Orleans-area and Northshore campuses who have installed the software. When an emergency text or email message is issued, the ALERTUS software receives the message from university servers and displays the message on users’ computer screens. Users must acknowledge the message before continuing to use their computers. The test should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and will consist of text and email messages and, depending on your location, a series of warning tones and verbal announcements plus a test message on users’ computer screens. Although the sirens are intended to warn people who are outside of buildings, they will probably be audible to most building occupants on the uptown campus depending on ambient noise levels. Please contact the Office of Emergency Management at 504-862-8266 with questions or concerns.
