WartburgAlert test planned
The emergency notification system for Wartburg College, WartburgAlert, will be tested Thursday, Sept. 14, around noon. WartburgAlert is tested, at minimum, once per term. Alerts aren’t automatically sent. You have to register your phone in order to receive alerts. There is no charge for registering, and you may register up to two numbers for text notification and two numbers for voice phones. You are strongly encouraged to register a SMS number to receive a text, which is the quickest and most reliable means of notification. To register, log in to InfoCenter using your Wartburg credentials. Under the “Offices” header, click on “Parking & Safety,” then, under “Important Resources,” select “WartburgAlert.” If you have problems registering, visit the Security Office on the first floor of Saemann Student Center Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. To verify if you are registered before next Thursday, send an email to Campus Security, and we will confirm your registration.
