Notification Systems

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 class room 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.

The following procedures are taken to notify the campus community of emergencies that may impact the campus community or place students, employees, or visitors in imminent danger.
