Emergency notification system alerts UWindsor community to industrial fire

Some members of the campus community didn’t have to see the plume of black smoke to know that a fire was raging in a plastic recycling plant on Windsor’s west side Tuesday afternoon. Registrants with the UWindsorAlert emergency notification system received notice of the fire through their telephones and e-mail, providing status reports and suggesting safety measures.

Campus police sergeant Chris Zelezney generated messages to individuals located toward the south end of campus.

Be prepared: motto of campus police newsletter

Campus Community Police has released its fifth edition of the campus emergency preparedness and crime prevention newsletter, UWindsor Prepare.

It is produced to keep the campus updated with the latest safety news and features, says sergeant Chris Zelezney.

The current issue has articles on campus police operations, a profile of the Campus Alcohol Education peer coordinator, and tips to avoid theft. Read it on the emergency preparedness website.
