You should be notified in the following ways:
- If you have already submitted your cell-phone information to MIT Alert, you will receive a text message.
- You will receive an e-mail via your MIT e-mail account.
- The flat-screen display message boards across campus will display the test message.
- All messages will be identical and will say: "This is a TEST of MIT Alert, MIT's emergency messaging system. For info on THIS TEST, go to: http://emergency.mit.net"
Why does the message point you to emergency.mit.net? IS&T has secured a mirror image of the emergency page on servers physically located in other off campus geographic locations. This is important in the event that a problem on campus made the MIT servers non-operational. The “.net” location would allow you to have access to the information relative to the emergency on campus.
