Campus community - Just a reminder that there will be a national test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) this afternoon. The test will occur at: 1:18PM CDT: FEMA will send the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) test to all cellphones 1:20PM CDT: FEMA will send the Emergency Alert System (EAS) test to all radio, TV and cable TV operators Depending on the handset model, cell phones may emit a loud alert tone even if they are on mute. The message will read “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

Our thoughts today are with the family, friends, and co-workers of fallen Milwaukee Police Department Officer Michael Michalski. He will be remembered.

Our own Officer Kurt Bergendahl was in Madison yesterday to take part in filming a new video about dealing with active threats on a University campus. It should be available some time this fall - check out the link for more info!

HOUSING STUDENTS: Snowplowing is scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, 2/6) between 3pm and 5pm. You must move your vehicles to a commuter parking lot on Tuesday morning/afternoon before the housing lots close for plowing at 3pm, and move it back before 9pm on Tuesday night. If you do not move your vehicle, it will be issued a $30 citation for remaining in a closed lot. If you do not move it back and leave it parked in a commuter lot overnight, it will be issued a $15 citation. If there is a reason you cannot move the vehicle - such as it has a mechanical problem or is broken down - please call the Police Department at 262-595-2455 before plowing begins. For more information, check your UWP email for the notice sent out by the Resident Life office. Thank you for your cooperation!

Spring semester permits are available at the police department in Tallent Hall for $115. We are open 24/7 for permits to be picked up. You must display a valid permit to park on campus. Metered parking is for visitors only, and it is signed as such (see picture). If you have questions about where to park, please call 262-595-2455 and we will be glad to answer!

The shuttle bus has retired for the semester. Students with Tallent-only permits, you are allowed to park in the other commuter lots through Winterim until the shuttle starts up again. Shuttle service will resume the first day of Spring semester, January 29, 2018!
