UNM community members encouraged to sign up through various mediums

LoboAlerts is replacing TextMe as UNM's emergency text notification system. This is one piece of a multi-faceted warning system which also includes sirens, e-mail messaging and web page updates. Faculty, staff and students should have received an e-mail earlier this semester informing you about the new LoboAlerts system.

All active University affiliates should login to LoboAlerts using their UNM NetID and password. Here users can review and change their data and ensure they receive any alerts. Additionally, users can opt out of either the text portion or the e-mail portion, but not both.

The entire campus notification system will be tested Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 11:02 a.m. When the sirens are sounded, individuals should seek shelter in the nearest building and look for additional information. This additional information will be available via text, e-mail and local media. If you receive a LoboAlerts text message, you are asked to follow any instructions it contains and to share the information with people around you. It is possible that different devices on different networks will receive the messages at different times.

Friends, family, community members and other non-University affiliates can also sign up to receive LoboAlerts through a variety of ways. They can follow at: LoboAlerts Twitter, or LoboAlerts Facebook, or register on the UNM Community website.
