RIT Alert is used to immediately notify the campus community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students, faculty and staff occurring on or near campus.
The system activates alert beacons, outdoor sirens/speakers, sends messages via Instant Message, text message to cell phones, voice message (mobile or land-line) and email. RIT Alert may be used for a health emergency; however other methods such as RITmail, email, News and Events, and the RIT website are preferred. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update Contact Information for Faculty/Staff
Faculty and staff (including Adjunct Faculty and RIT Temporary Employees) information for the RIT Alert emergency notification system are taken from CLAWS. Phone information will be fed to CLAWS from eBiz.
Add or update your mobile phone (secondary) phone information as necessary.
The mobile phone numbers you enter in SIS and CLAWS will be sent to the RIT Alert system. In case of an immediate threat to the health or safety of RIT community members, you will be sent a text message and/ phone call or to your mobile phone.
