UGAAlert test will be held on Feb. 5

In conjunction with the statewide severe weather drill, a full test of UGAAlert, the university’s emergency notification system, has been scheduled for 9 a.m. on Feb. 5.

Campus outdoor warning sirens will sound, and members of the UGA community should either pause to reflect upon where they would shelter in the event of an actual tornado warning or proceed to their building severe weather shelter locations to ensure that these locations are known by building occupants.
