The Department of Campus Safety will conduct a test for those who have registered for the Loyola Alert system on Wednesday, September 30, at 2:30 pm. A test of the exterior emergency public address systems on the Lake Shore and Water Tower campuses will also take place.
Those who have registered for Loyola Alert can expect to receive a phone call, text message, and/or e-mail, depending on which communication channel(s) they have chosen.
If you are already registered, please visit LUC.edu/alert to verify that your information is correct. If you haven’t already registered, please do.
We strongly encourage everyone to register. We will ONLY use this system for critical on-campus emergencies that are of an immediate threat, including:
- Barricade/hostage incidents
- Severe and threatening weather incidents
- National civil emergencies
- Terrorist or other violent acts
- Health emergencies (as ordered by public health authorities)
If you believe you signed up for Loyola Alert but after the test do not receive any or all of the delivery methods you’ve selected, go to LUC.edu/alert and verify your contact information. If the information is accurate, and you did not receive communication or experienced a delay in receiving the messages, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
