ECU Alert System testing starts today

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - Before the first day of class kicks off at ECU, officials will test the ECU Alert emergency notification system throughout the week.

The tests start today and will assess systems such as the University's website, email, indoor and outdoor loudspeakers, and text messages.

Certain parts of the system will be tested today and tomorrow.

For example, they won't test the text messages today or tomorrow, but all aspects of the alert system will be checked at noon on Friday.

Again, these alerts are just a test.
