On Monday, June 30, 2008, there will be a test of the automated emergency alert banner for all UConn websites. The test will be conducted between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. For the first 30 minutes, a yellow warning banner will appear across the top of web pages. For the last 30 minutes, a red warning banner will appear.
The SAIT Web Team has applied the alert banner code to all Division websites. We will be thoroughly checking each Division website during the test period to ensure that the code has been implemented and works properly.
If you notice any issues with a Division website or webpage during the test period, please note the following information and contact SAIT to report a problem:
- Website Name
- Website/page URL(s)
- Brief description of issue
- A screen shot (if possible)
The automated emergency alert banner is one of the components of the University Alert Notification System. Others include email, voice mail, outdoor sirens and Code Blue Phone Kiosks. Each of these components is intended to enhance communications during an emergency situation.
