In the News: Upgrade for Emergency Alert System

As a reminder, the Buckeye Alert System has integrated new technology to enhance the timely sharing of safety information. Click here to watch 10TV's story about the upgrade.

Buckeye Alerts, often sent via text message, are issued when it is determined that the campus community needs to take immediate action to remain safe. As a result, if a Buckeye Alert text message is issued, there is a chance it may contain general information such as: "Buckeye Alert! Emergency on Columbus campus: More info soon. Be observant/take action as needed."

In this instance, a second Buckeye Alert is likely to follow containing additional details like the incident location or the specific type of emergency. Your safety remains our top priority, and we encourage you to ensure you are signed up for, or learn more about, Buckeye Alerts and Public Safety Notice emails on our website:
