B-Alert is the campus emergency notification system. In the event of an emergency, B-Alert will notify faculty, staff, and students via text message, email, and phone call. A similar message will be broadcast over the campus-wide public address system and will likely be heard by neighbors in residential areas around campus, including both sides of Route 15.

NOTE: You must use your contact information, not information for your emergency contacts such as family or friends.
