Campus Emergency Notifications

The emergency notification systems on campus are in place to notify faculty, staff, and students of imminent and urgent situations that may affect the campus.

The following notification systems are in place:

JSU Alert

JSU ALERT is an emergency notification system that notifies faculty, staff, and students of critical information and situations affecting campus through the use of text messages, voice messages to multiple phone numbers, and emails. Sign up for JSU ALERT thru your MyJSU account. This system makes immediate notifications across campus without delay.

NOAA Weather Radios

NOAA weather radios are located in all buildings on campus. The NOAA weather alert radios receive information directly from the National Weather Service. This information includes current weather and also any issued watches or warnings.

Outdoor Warning Sirens

Outdoor warning sirens are in place around campus to alert people of severe weather. Once the sirens are activated, members of the campus community should seek shelter and tune to radios or television for updates and instructions. These sirens could also be used in the event of other emergencies. However, activation will still require seeking shelter from the outdoors.

Building Fire Alarms

Fire alarms are in place to notify building occupants of possible fire dangers in the building. If you hear the fire alarm, evacuate the building immediately.
