Alert Notification System for Employees and Students

Campus Alerts Notification System

 

Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary has launched an Alerts Notification System that allows us to alert you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather closings or active violence situations.  If you are an employee or student of Garrett-Evangelical you have automatically been opted into emergency notifications.
 
The Alerts Notification System allows each user to determine their preferred method of contact. To manage your preferences, go to the Alerts Notification System portal.
 
Please note, if we can't reach you, then we cannot alert you. It is imperative that you update your contact information whenever it changes. To update your contact information, go to the Alerts Notification System.

How it Works

When we issue an alerts notification, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication methods that you have registered. If requested for the notification, you can confirm that you have received the message and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered.

For all others who want to receive alert notifications from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary an opt-in feature is available. This feature will notify participants via text message whenever an alert from Garrett-Evangelical is sent. Those who might want to sign up for alert notifications could include:

  • Vendors of the institution who are on campus regularly
  • Guests on campus or in the Seminary’s housing
  • Family members
  • Roommates
  • An employee or student's emergency point of contact

 

How to Sign Up?

In order for someone to sign up, they simply need to text GARRETTALERT to 888-777.

Please note, there is no charge to them for the Garrett Alerts service but messaging and data rates may apply.

 

Does an Employee or Student Need to Sign Up for This Text Service?

No. If you are an employee of the institution or a student, you do not need to sign up for this text only service. As an employee or student, the Garrett Alerts Notification system gives you additional options and allows for you to determine how you want to be contacted.

How Does the Text Only Service Work?
The process begins when Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Next, the Garrett Campus Alerts system will send a text message to those who have enrolled in this service. Pending the safety concern or emergency, additional text messages may be sent and when appropriate instructions for action to be taken will be included. Please note, those enrolled in this service will only be contacted via text messaging. In addition, participants can text STOP at any time to cancel this service.
