The university has four separate emergency notification systems to alert the campus community.
1. The Everbridge mass notification system contacts students and employees through email, phone messaging, and texting.
2. Emergency messages can be sent to enunciators on campus "blue phones."
3. Emergency messages can also be sent to the projectors in every classroom campus-wide or in specific buildings.
4. A software package that distributes an emergency message to every phone on campus.
These systems are being networked so that the same message can be broadcast simultaneously on all four systems. Emergency notification procedures will be tested on an annual basis and the results documented including date, time, evaluation of the process, and whether it was announced or unannounced.
Emergency Notification Commitee
The University maintains an Emergency Notification Committee with members consisting of the University President, University Resources Vice President, Advancement Vice President, and the Director of Security & Safety or an appropriate replacement in their absence.
