Emergency Notification System Test on May 9, 2019

May 1, 2019

To all Members of the Carleton Community,

As part of the university’s commitment to ensure that recent updates to its Emergency Notification System (ENS) are operational, there will be a test on Thursday, May 9, 2019.

This test coincides with national Emergency Preparedness Week.

The test will include three types of notifications: campus computer screen messages, emails sent out to all Carleton University addresses, and a push notification through the Carleton Mobile app. This immediate push notification replaces previous cellphone text messages, which are subject to the data schedule of service providers.

To ensure you receive a notification on your cellphone on May 9, please download the Carleton Mobile app and allow notifications under your cellphone settings.

If you’d like some hands-on assistance with the Carleton Mobile app, Carleton’s Emergency Management Officer Sal Ugarte will be in the University Centre Galleria on Monday, May 6, 2019, between noon and 1 p.m. and would be pleased to answer your questions.

For more information about Carleton’s emergency plans, please go to the Emergency Management website.

If you have any questions, please email

Brian Billings
Director, Campus Safety Services
