POSTPONED: RIT emergency notification system test set for 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2

UPDATE Oct. 2, 2022: Today’s RIT Alert emergency notification test is postponed. We will reschedule the test for another time. For more information on RIT Alert, go to the Emergency Information website.

RIT will be testing the RIT Alert emergency notification system at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 2. Please make sure your contact information is in the RIT Alert system by following the appropriate instructions below:

RIT Alert is used to immediately notify the campus community of an imminent threat to the health or safety of students, faculty, and staff on or near the Henrietta campus. Examples of an imminent threat include — but are not limited to — a severe weather event (such as a tornado or other storm that can cause the cancellation of classes and on-campus activities), fire, or threat of violence. The system uses the emergency beacons on campus and can send a text message to cell phones, voice message (mobile or land-line), social media and email. The message will include immediate actions required by RIT community members.

After the community receives the initial notice of an emergency through the RIT Alert system, additional information is provided through RITmail, RIT Facebook, RIT Twitter, and the RIT website.

An "ALL CLEAR" message is typically broadcast on RIT Alert when the emergency situation resolves.

To report an emergency or imminent threat, contact RIT Public Safety. This includes if you experience, observe, have knowledge of, or perceive an imminent threat of violence on campus.
