The University of Florida plans to test its emergency text messaging system today. 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 my.ufl.edu.
