New York Alert

SUNY Oswego is one of many State University campuses that have adopted New York Alert, an emergency messaging platform powered by Everbridge -- a global company that provides enterprise software applications that automate and accelerate an organization’s operational response to critical events in order to keep people safe and businesses running. 

At SUNY Oswego, the system will only be used for emergency communication or to inform the campus community of a campuswide cancellation of classes due to severe winter weather.  Only SUNY Oswego University Police and Office of Communications and Marketing staff will have the ability to send emergency alerts to members of the Oswego campus community.

New York Alert is a critical communications platform built on a secure, scalable and reliable infrastructure with multiple layers of redundancy to enable the rapid delivery of critical communications, with near real-time verification, over numerous devices and contact paths.The system allows e-mail, telephone and text messages to be sent automatically to all members of the campus community who have provided their contact information. 


How to sign up or unsubscribe

Members of the campus community may choose to receive alerts or not. Students indicate their preferences through myOswego under personal information. Employees enter their contact information by logging on to the employee portal on the SUNY System Administration website.

If you choose to receive the alerts, you must provide at least one e-mail address. You may also provide a cell phone number and provider to receive text message alerts and a phone number, either cell or land line, to receive voice alerts. You may list up to three phone numbers for each of these options, but be aware that the automated system will attempt to contact every number that you list. We advise that you list your most-used number for text messaging and/or your most-used number for voice messages.
