Safety First Alert and Emergency Contact Information

In the event of an emergency situation on or near campus, the University may need to contact you or someone close to you. Please take a moment and complete two important tasks to provide us with essential contact information we may need.

Please confirm your Safety First Alert preferences and emergency contact information through our online form.

Safety First Alert

The Safety First Alert service is Michigan Tech’s communication system that allows the campus community to receive emergency and time-sensitive notifications via voice, email, and text message. You will be asked to provide and/or update your information annually or when you begin as an employee or student. Remember, we can only reach you if your information is correct.

Emergency Contact Information

Students and employees are asked to provide emergency contact information. The person you list will only be contacted in the event of a health or safety emergency in which you are personally involved. In addition, if you live on campus, this will also be the person contacted should you be reported as missing. You may list a parent, family member, spouse, or other trusted individual as your emergency contact. Each year, you must review your current preferences and update or provide new contact information.

If you are a student and have a question, please contact the Dean of Students office at 906-487-2212 or Employees, please contact Human Resources at 906-487-2280.
