Georgia Southern University is scheduled to test all components of the Eagle Alert system next Thursday.

During the test, an Eagle Alert will go out via email, phone and text message notifications.

Georgia Southern will also test the emergency hotline phone number – 912.681.5588.

The Eagle Alert system is an emergency communications system designed to play a key role in keeping Georgia Southern’s students, faculty, staff and campus visitors safe during emergency situations.

According to a press release, at approximately 3:15 p.m., emergency alert procedures will be activated on the Georgia Southern campus.

An emergency announcement will also appear on the University homepage, the University alert page, on campus digital signage and on social media.
