For those who haven’t registered for the Southeastern Emergency Alert System, college officials say a new semester is the perfect opportunity to sign up to receive notices via phone, text or email addresses in addition to Southeastern email accounts, which are automatically registered.
Registration is free and only takes a minute or two to complete. Students, faculty and staff can register for the system by visiting southeastern.edu/about/safe_campus/alert/. The system is tested periodically to ensure successful message delivery, but otherwise is used exclusively for emergency notices, including weather-related campus closures. Southeastern emphasizes a comprehensive approach to campus safety and emergency preparedness with the Southeastern Emergency Alert System as one of its facets. Information on all the various offerings and endeavors can be found at southeastern.edu/safecampus. Included in the overall plan are sirens located strategically across campus that will sound in the event of an emergency.
