Did you know you can sign up to make certain you hear about campus emergencies? The UW Police Department has information about the WiscAlerts system, which has been used for weather, police, and healthemergencies (such as a fire, or a chemical spill). You can sign up by visiting https://uwpd. wisc.edu/services/wiscalerts and entering your Wisc.edu username and password.
In addition to the messages that are sent via text, phones, and email, the UW Madison homepage will also have up to date information in case of any emergency. If you have a Twitter account, you can also sign up for emergency tweets: Tweets by @WiscAlerts.
