Annual test of PacificCONNECT emergency notification system

Nov 6, 2015

Pacific's emergency management organization, the Pacific Alert Team, will conduct an annual test of the university's emergency notification system, PacificCONNECT, on all three campuses between noon and 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18.

If you are signed up for PacificCONNECT, you should receive an email, phone call, and/or text message according to how you have set up your preferred emergency notification.

The PLT also plans to test the emergency notification system on all University digital (IP) phones. For those who have these phones, you may receive a message on your phone's screen and/or a voice message coming through the phone's speaker.

Finally, the PLT plans to test the outdoor emergency speaker system on the Stockton campus. During this time, those in Stockton may hear a message broadcasted throughout the campus. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

In light of the recent incidents on college campuses across the country, the PLT believes it is important to ensure all our communication tools are working properly and that our students, faculty, staff and our guests are able to receive information in a timely manner.

If you have not already done so, please take a moment to update your Pacific Connect contact information (i.e. mobile number, personal email, home phone number, etc.) to ensure that you are alerted in the event of a crisis or emergency. You can enter your information on the insidePacific website at Once you have logged in, click on the "Administrative" tab and update your profile in the Pacific Connect box.

If you have any questions or need more information, please be sure to contact Steve Jacobson ( or Mike Belcher ( who serve as the co-chairs of the Pacific Alert Team.
