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 three important tasks to provide us with essential contact information we may need.
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.
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.
Alertus is a Michigan Tech emergency communication system that enables the campus community to receive emergency notifications on your computer screen. In an urgent situation, Alertus can send an emergency message to all computer screens on the Michigan Tech network.
