    What Is NY Alert?

    NY-ALERT is maintained by the New York State Emergency Management Office. It is used to send information regarding serious safety issues to the entire campus community in response to any event or situation which poses a serious safety concern. This system is one of a number of alert mechanisms used during such an emergency, but is the only alert system which sends messages directly to users individually.

    Campus closures and class cancellations created by dangerous travel conditions are included in the alerts you will receive.

    The system itself and the data you provide to the system will not be used for any other campus information broadcast.

    The system is capable of sending email, recorded voice and text messages to multiple addresses and phone numbers that you provide.

    Participation is strongly encouraged but completely voluntary.

    It is provided to you at no cost (except for any charges assessed by your wireless service provider), and only a single email address is required to participate.

  3. Click on the “Personal Information” link on the Main Menu, then on “Emergency Alert Contact Information (NY-Alert)”
