|Campuswide testing of Notifind System set for Wednesday, Feb. 4|
It is necessary for UND to conduct a test of its emergency notification systems.
Campus Safety and Security is working with the Facilities Communication Center, Telecommunications, and University Relations to conduct these tests Wednesday, Feb. 4.
Specifically, the NotiFind system will be used to send test voice notification via campus phone and home phone. A text message will be sent to the work cell phone and/or home cell phone (if a phone number was listed for receiving text messaging). Additionally, a campuswide e-mail will be sent from University Relations alerting the emergency test.
System testing is scheduled to begin shortly after 1 p.m., with prior notice being sent out campuswide.
During the upcoming test of the NotiFind system, the UND campus may experience a period of time where long distance calls cannot be received. The NotiFind system will potentially use all available incoming long distance trunks (lines) to the UND campus for notifying people on campus. Someone attempting to place a long distance call to UND during this time will either hear a busy signal or a message stating that all circuits are busy.
Please do not call the Facilities 24 hour communications center, Central Dispatch (911), or University Relations with questions about the test. Rather, please e-mail any questions you have to
