Emergency Alert System
UNC Charlotte’s Niner Network Emergency Alert System is an urgent notification system, by which the University can notify residents of active, major campus/area emergencies. The system is also integrated with the National Emergency Alert in the event it is triggered by government officials or locally by UNC Charlotte Police & Public Safety.
When the University determines there is an active emergency in which the public safety of the campus may be at risk, it will initiate an urgent notification through the Emergency Alert System over the Niner Network TV system.
You will see tests performed at various times to ensure its integrity. In the event of an emergency, important information will display on the television, along with a text to speech conversion of the event.
