Important update on UMaine emergency communication alerts

The University of Maine and the other campuses in the University of Maine System are changing emergency communication service providers.

The first test of the new system will be Nov. 29 after 11 a.m. to all current UMaine emergency communication subscribers. If you are a subscriber and do not receive the test alerts by mid-afternoon today, go online to re-enroll.

For members of the UMaine community already receiving emergency communication, your existing preferences for alert delivery — text, email and/or voice — have been transferred to the new system. For those with addresses, updates to your preferences can be made and new subscriptions added in the UMaine portal under the UMaine Quick Links section. Current subscribers without a address needing to update preferences, or those with addresses wishing to receive UMaine emergency alerts, can do so online.

A list of frequently asked questions about the new UMaine emergency communication is online.
