Regular test of PSUAlert system to be conducted on Oct. 26 at Brandywine

MEDIA, Pa. — Penn State Brandywine Police and Public Safety are conducting a campus-wide test of the PSUAlert emergency notification system on Friday, Oct. 26, as part of an annual Clery exercise.

Everyone who receives alerts for the Brandywine campus will receive the test message by email, and those at Brandywine who have elected to receive messages by text or voice notification will receive the test by those modes as well. This test will not involve Penn State's other locations across the Commonwealth.

Regardless of location, all Penn State students, faculty and staff can add emergency alert contact information and manage their campus subscriptions using the PSUAlert portal at

In the event of a true emergency, and depending on the situation, emergency notifications also will be distributed on radio and television stations, through various Penn State websites including, on-campus fliers, press releases, and other means as appropriate.

In the spirit of being prepared, students, faculty and staff can find more information on what to do during various emergency situations by consulting Penn State’s Emergency Action Guides, which can be found at locations around campus or online at
