DANBURY, Conn. -- Western Connecticut State University will conduct a test of its Emergency Notification System (MIR3) before noon on Monday, Nov. 18, the Danbury-based college announced.
Those students, staff and residents who have already registered to receive emergency notices, including weather-related closure information, through MIR3 will receive a test message via voice, text message or email to the phones and PCs they specified upon registration, WestConn announced. This will be a test only – not an actual emergency.
Those who have not signed up to receive WCSU's emergency messages may "Opt In" to MIR3 online at any time.
As the winter and snow season approaches, WestConn will use MIR3 to announce early dismissals, campus closings, and/or opening delays caused by bad weather conditions. WestConn will also post this information on the university's homepage as "Emergency/Weather" alerts, place it on the WCSU "snowline" at 203-837-9377, and post it online .
When possible, WestConn will announce any early dismissal decision two hours before the closure time and will announce any campus closure or delay decision by 5 a.m.
