As part of the university’s emergency preparedness, we are conducting a test of our emergency notification system tomorrow, January 31. 

Testing of the emergency notification system is conducted periodically. During this test, a notification will be sent to the mobile phone contact information provided in your MySSU or MyHR accounts. Notifications may also arrive as a text and voice message on subscribed mobile phone numbers and as emails sent to SSU email addresses, and as desktop override notifications to SSU state-managed computers. 

You can verify or update your contact information by logging into MySSU (students) and MyHR (SSU employees). This information is added automatically to our emergency notification system for all students, faculty, and staff. When entering your mobile phone number in MySSU and MyHR, please make sure to label it as a “Mobile Phone” to ensure you receive text message alerts.  The emergency notification system is only used to communicate critical emergency information and will not be used for any other purpose or shared with outside entities.

Please note that any changes made today in MySSU and MyHR will be updated in the ENS system overnight and will be included in the test. 

In lieu of including your mobile phone number in MySSU or MyHR, you may opt-in to the SSU emergency notification system by texting SSUALERTS to 67283.
