St. Thomas Emergency Notification System

St. Thomas’ Emergency Alert system will be used to notify campus of any imminent danger. The alert will include known locations and specific instructions in the event of an emergency.  To prepare yourself in advance for any emergency, familiarize yourself with our emergency response guidelines.

Participation in the St. Thomas Emergency Notification System requires students, staff and faculty to register their cell phone numbers. This system will only be used by the university's Department of Public Safety and only in the most extreme cases involving the safety of the university community.

The system can send both voice and text messages to the cell phones of all students, staff and faculty who register their cell-phone information. There is no cost and participation is voluntary. Those who do not register a cell phone number will receive emergency alerts via e-mail and their office, home and/or residence hall phones.
