Timely, accurate information is a valuable safety tool. Knowing what’s happening and what to do during emergencies – like severe weather, an earthquake, or a violent attack – can make all the difference in safeguarding personal safety.
The University of Utah’s Campus Alert System is designed to reach everyone on campus in the best way possible during an emergency. Most alerts are sent via email and are color-coded according to level of importance for quick identification.
On rare occasions, when every second counts, emergency messages will be sent via text to cell phones. To sign up to receive text notifications, log into CIS and click on the Campus Alert link.
Students, faculty, staff and even visitors can also be alerted of emergencies using this mobile app.
