OSU Alert

What is OSU Alert?

It is an alert system that allows public safety officials to create emergency alerts that contain a recorded voice message, an email message, and a text message and send them to the current database of contact information for all employees and students. In crisis situations, the system will try all means of contacting each person in the database, and uses sophisticated means to verify contact so that we know we have reached everyone we could.

Who can use OSU Alert?

Only OSU students and employees are entered into the system (no affiliates).
