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.

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. Students and employees are asked to provide and/or update information annually or when they 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. 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.

Missing Person Contact Information

Students living on campus are given the opportunity to register a name and contact information of an individual whom university officials should contact if the student is reported to be missing for longer than 24 hours.  Your missing person contact may be the same or a different person as your listed emergency contact.  Students living off campus are not required to provide a missing person contact.                                                                             


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.
