Essential college services (i.e.: Heating/Plumbing, Electrical, Automotive, Grounds, University Police, and Food and Health Services) must be maintained in spite of severe weather. When cancellation of classes has been declared, the President will notify the Department of Marketing and Communications to facilitate announcements via the campus' emergency messaging channels (NY Alert, listserv email, website, etc.) and on radio and TV stations across Western New York, if appropriate.


Sign up for NY-Alert

Members of the Fredonia campus community are urged to sign up for NY-Alert, a secure, web-based emergency text, email and voice message alert system maintained by SUNY Administration and the New York State Emergency Management Office. NY-Alert is the primary tool within the mass communication system used on campus during an emergency, and the only alert system which will send messages directly to students, faculty and staff without being having to be logged into email.
