Test of the RSU #24 Emergency Messenger System

Next week on Nov. 13-14 we will be testing the RSU #24 Emergency Messenger System. You will receive an email on Tuesday notifying you of this test, and then the test message will arrive Wednesday. This message will be sent by text, voice, and/or email, whatever method you requested in Infinite Campus. If you do not receive this message by end of day Wednesday, Nov. 14, please let your school secretary know, as this means you are not signed up for emergency messages or your contact information has changed. This is the system we use for snow days, early release due to power outages, and other important RSU #24 information. Thank you.

Upcoming Test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System

On Wednesday, October 3rd, beginning at 2:18 PM, there will be a nationwide test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of IPAWS and its Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) to 1. assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message, and 2. determine whether improvements are needed.

The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 pm and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 pm. This test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA, which is why we are making our Cave Hill family aware in advance.

We, at Cave Hill, will hold a lock down drill during this time. We have practiced this drill the first week of school so students are aware of what to do.

Maine and our nations' federal partners are committed to strengthening the National Preparedness System, and this test provides just one example of that commitment.

Please let Mrs. Jordan know if you have any concerns and/or questions.
