Vendor system issues with Eastern’s emergency text and email notifications has been resolved by the ITS staff.

The system error prevented notifications from being delivered.

Daniel Nadler, the vice president for student affairs, said the notification system has a siren and public address that is tested every Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m.

A phone tree that notifies individuals about emergencies so that information can be posted for the public through radio and television announcements works notifications from this system.

Nadler said if an error were to occur during an actual emergency they have personnel who could send a mass message manually.
