Subject: Important: Register or Update Information for NMSU's Emergency Mass Notification Service

In order to better serve the university community, NMSU has enhanced its emergency notification service with the acquisition of a state-of-the-art, multi-modal emergency mass notification system. The system ensures that students, faculty, and staff receive critical emergency notifications of disasters, hazardous weather, and other threats to the safety of the university community. When activated, the system transmits an emergency notification via text message, university e-mail/personal e-mail, or cell phone/standard telephone (land line) to all students, faculty and staff who have registered for the emergency notification service.

***Registering Your Emergency Notification Information***

In order for you to be notified of emergencies through this system, you must register your contact information at the university’s secure, emergency notification registration web page, http://emergency.nmsu.edu . With the exception of your university email address, which is automatically populated by NMSU central systems, you must enter all other contact information. In addition to emergency notifications, you will occasionally receive notification test messages and reminders to update your information for the emergency mass notification system.

***Upcoming Emergency Notification Test***

On September 23, 2009, a test of the system will be conducted. During the test, you will receive an emergency test message. No response to the message is necessary.
