TRU Alert test on Dec. 17

The following is an invitation to sign up for the TRU Alert Emergency Notification System and to take part in a test on Dec. 17.

Are you one of the 1,300 people who have signed up to receive mobile alerts from TRU Alert? This is part of TRU’s Emergency Notification System which will alert you in the event of a major emergency on campus.

It is extremely important that you sign up to receive these alerts as they will provide you with timely information on what is happening, where it is happening, and what you need to do to stay safe.
