NY Alert is the College Emergency Alert System

Be Prepared
NY-Alert is designed to alert you in cases where your personal safety may be at risk. For this reason, it is critical that the NY-Alert system have the e mail address(es), fax(es), text messaging and telephone numbers you use on a regular basis. Please be assured that the data you provide will be used for no other purpose.

Alert notifications will be sent for emergency events or "life threatening" situations. Advisory notifications will be issued in the case of non-emergencies, such as weather related closures or cancellations. "All Clear" and/or additional follow-up messages or instructions pertaining to the end of an event or additional instructions regarding the event may also be issued.

The data you provide will be sent to the State Emergency Management Office (SEMO) by SUNY System Administration. Your information will not be sent to third parties, public or private. Data is transmitted weekly so registration and data changes can take up to seven days to change your information in the alert system.

We consider this data critical and strongly encourage your participation. You will be able to enroll at any time. You will be prompted at the beginning of each semester to confirm your decision regarding participation and offered an opportunity to update your personal contact data.

By submitting contact information, you are providing your consent for disclosure of this information to both SUNY System Administration and to the State Emergency Management Office (SEMO).
