Clarion, Pa.- The Eagle Alert System is a free emergency alert system offered to students and faculty by Clarion University that will disperse time-sensitive, pertinent information in the event of unanticipated crises or life-threatening situations on campus or in the local area.
Additionally, the university will use this service to notify students of school-wide class cancellations. A key aspect to note of this university-wide class cancellation policy is that cancellations are predicated “only under extreme circumstances which creates a state of emergency.”
On Wednesday, Feb. 24 at approximately 2 p.m. there will be a scheduled test of this emergency service for all those who are registered. In order to register for the Eagle Alert System, follow the instructions at www.clarion.edu/eaglealerts.
The Eagle Alert test was originally scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 16, but was moved to avoid confusion since there was inclement weather on Tuesday, which was also a day this week where some professors cancelled classes. Those signed up to receive the alert should receive a text next Wednesday afternoon.
Emails will be sent in the future when the Eagle Alert system is tested.
Eagle Alerts will always be sent out in case of a serious emergency or university cancellation.
