ABOUT THIS EMAIL: Campus-wide email is not an instant source of information as part of the University’s timely warning notification process. Text messages sent to registered cell phone users are the fastest way for the University to notify you. That’s why email messages like this one will always include a timestamp to indicate when the message was sent. The University’s Emergency Notification System is activated using a strategy that is based on redundancy, using multiple methods to communicate. The best, most up-to-date source of information will always be the Alert Carolina website, http://www.alertcarolina.unc.edu/.
