PacificCONNECT is the University's official emergency messaging system. Tests of the system are conducted annually.
PacificConnect Test Set for Friday, March 14
University of the Pacific will test its emergency messaging systems on Friday, March 14.
Messages will be sent on PacificCONNECT, Pacific's primary messaging system during emergencies, and on the IP phone network at about 4:30 p.m.
PacificCONNECT sends text messages and voice phone messages to registered users. All students are automatically registered at the beginning of each school year, but faculty and staff must register by logging in to InsidePacific, clicking on the "Administrative" tab, and then clicking on the box on the right-hand side that says "PacificCONNECT." Then simply fill in the necessary contact information.
The IP phone messaging system will display a message on any CISCO IP phone on Pacific's phone network. The test may disrupt telephone calls at the time of the test.
Pacific Alert Team, the emergency management team for Pacific, tests the emergency messaging systems each year. If you do not receive a test message and believe you should have, contact Blake Crary at Bcrary@pacific.edu. The subject line on the email should be "PacificCONNECT Test Problem."
