ECU debuting new alert system

Published On: Jul 16 2013 06:06:58 PM CDT

East Carolina University is improving the way it notifies people of campus emergencies.

The university will replace the old ECU ALERT pop-up box push notification with a new pop-up notification system, called "Alert Us."

Both PC's and Apple computers will be able to receive the message alerts, according to a recent press release sent from the university.

The new pop-up notification will fill your entire computer screen when activated.

The university plans to test the new system during move-in weekend in the fall semester.
