Central Washington University Tests CWU Alert! System
ELLENSBURG--Central Washington University is also testing a new way to keep students and staff members safe: phone and e-mail alerts. The alerts will be sent to every cell phone and e-mail account in the university's database to warn of emergencies on campus. Thursday's test is to make sure c-w-u's computer system can handle sending out so many messages at once.
Students and staff members should make sure the correct contact information is in the university's database to ensure alert messages are received.
