Upcoming RebelSAFE Alert System Test and Student Union Fire Drill - April 5th

Apr. 4, 2018

UNLV will be testing the RebelSAFE Alert System on Thursday, April 5 at approximately 9 a.m.

This is only a practice test of the RebelSAFE Alert System, and it is not an actual emergency.  The RebelSAFE Alert System will send a message clearly identifying itself as a test, to UNLV students, faculty, staff, and community members.

PLEASE NOTE:  The RebelSAFE test will be conducted prior to a scheduled fire drill taking place at 10:00 a.m. in the UNLV Student Union where all occupants will be asked to exit the building.  The Student Union fire drill is held every year and will take approximately 10 minutes.  Emergency services will not be dispatched to the Student Union facility during the fire drill, but UNLV staff will be available to answer questions.

 

About the RebelSAFE Alert System:

RebelSAFE Alert is 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, post 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.

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 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.
