Description

UNLV will be testing its RebelSAFE Alert System at 10 a.m. Feb. 7. It is important to note that this alert is only a practice drill of the system and not an actual emergency. The RebelSAFE Alert Systemis the emergency notification system (ENS) used for incidents that present an imminent threat to life, health, or safety to UNLV students, employees, faculty, and community members on UNLV campuses and facilities. RebelSAFE Alert messages provide emergency information and instructions to protect you during an emergency. In the event of an emergency, RebelSAFE Alert will send emails, text messages, posts to UNLV Police Services' Facebook and Twitter sites, push notifications to the RebelSAFE Mobile App, and provide audio and visual warnings to computer desktops, digital advertising kiosks, RebelSAFE emergency phones, and UNLV websites.

On Feb. 7, the RebelSAFE Alert system will send an email and text message, clearly identified as a test, to UNLV students, faculty, staff, and community members. The test message will read, "This is a test of the RebelSAFE Alert System. There is no emergency. Visit unlv.edu/info for updates."

Emergency alerts are provided to students, faculty, and staff based on contact information provided to university student and personnel databases (MyUNLV and Workday). If during the test you find you are not receiving text messages, you may need to update your contact information. Contact information in the databases can be updated by visiting the Update Your Contact Info in RebelSAFE webpage. If you currently do not have your cell phone contact information in these databases, we strongly encourage you to enter them at this time. Not doing so will prevent UNLV from sending emergency text messages to your cell phone.

Campus community members without access to Workday or MyUNLV accounts may also receive RebelSAFE alerts by submitting contact information electronically. Police Services will then review your application and add your contact information to the RebelSAFE Alert System once your status has been verified.
