UNR to test emergency alert system Friday

RENO — University of Nevada, Reno, police will test the campus’ emergency alert systems Friday to make sure they’re ready when students begin classes Aug. 26.

Campus police will activate several safety systems, including a new outdoor notification system that sends an audible alert. Other emergency communication measures include text messages, campus-wide email, postings to Twitter and Facebook and a scrolling banner on campus public computers.
