With the fall quarter underway, Eastern Washington University will run a test of the “EWU Alerts” service at 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 2, to ensure it is working properly.

EWU Alerts is the quickest and easiest way to send emergency communications to campus via text messaging, email and social media.

Everyone with an ewu.edu or eagles.ewu.edu email should automatically receive a test alert via email. If you have your cell phone number registered you will also receive a text message. If your cell phone is not registered, or you are a new user, please visit ewu.edu/alerts to sign up.
