Emergency Notification System


Announcement from the Vice Chancellor Administration

Dear UCR Faculty, Staff, and Students,

The University of California, Riverside is committed to providing a safe and secure environment to campus students, faculty, staff, and visitors. UCR engages in a broad array of activities supporting this goal, including comprehensive training for police and other safety related personnel, disaster and emergency preparedness planning, as well as a host of other activities aimed at preventing problems before they occur.

To enhance UCR's emergency preparedness, the campus has launched a new emergency notification system. This new system will build on existing methods of information distribution and communication, and will greatly expand UCR's ability to quickly and reliably communicate with students, staff, and faculty in an emergency.

The initial deployment of the new system will focus on emergency text messaging. In a crisis, this mode of communication will serve as a reliable tool enabling UCR police and safety personnel to contact the entire campus community. For more information concerning UCR's emergency notification system, please visit http://emergencynotification.ucr.edu/ .

Please recall that campus safety is a collective concern and responsibility. We are therefore asking all faculty, staff, students, emeriti, and affiliates to actively participate in this program and provide UCR the data campus safety professionals need to contact you in an emergency. You can sign up for the program as follows:

Faculty, Staff, Emeriti, and Affiliates please visit the following web address:

If you have any questions or comments concerning UCR's emergency notification system, please e-mail emergencynotification@ucr.edu or contact Paul Walker, Environmental Health & Safety (at paul.walker@ucr.edu). Thank you in advance for helping make UCR a safer place to learn, work, and grow.
