The University of Florida plans to test its emergency text

messaging system Tuesday. All students, faculty and staff with a

cell phone number registered in the university's emergency contact

database should receive the message.

People are instructed not to reply to the message.

UF is the first state institution in Florida to implement an

emergency text messaging alert system in Florida, according to the

university's Web site.

Those who have not registered their information may complete the

form at www.my.ufl.edu.
