Notification Types

Emergency Warning

Crime Alert

Adverse Conditions

Issued when circumstances exist that do not represent an immediate threat to health or safety, yet action may enable people to protect themselves and/or their property. Includes adverse weather events, major campus utility outages or other situations that would require a change in the University’s normal operating status.


Informs campus when a situation is not an emergency or does not pose an immediate threat to the campus community but is of significant interest to campus. Examples include but are not limited to tests of the system, emergency response training, etc.
