Emergency Alert System Classroom Implementation

September 21, 2018

In an ongoing effort to strengthen campus safety and improve communication on campus, Campus Technology Services (CTS), University Police, and the Office of Communications and Marketing teamed up this summer and took a number of steps aimed at augmenting the way in which we notify members of our campus community in the event of a crisis or emergency.

The following enhancements that are now in place and ready to implement if and when necessary.

  • Classrooms and conference rooms have been equipped to transmit emergency notification alerts and information.

  • In the case of an emergency, students, faculty and staff will receive an audio broadcast message via phones that are present in classrooms and conference rooms.*

  • In addition, a visual message/alert will automatically appear on teaching stations in use.

* NOTE: A large majority of classrooms and conference rooms are equipped to transmit emergency notification alerts and information. CTS is identifying other locations, including major gathering areas, that require additional technology in order to be included in the emergency notification system.

Among the locations that are currently identified that are having equipment installed, include:

  • MCC 205 - installed
  • Hewitt 7a, 123c, 213d, 232 - installed
  • Laker 207,216 - installed
  • Lanigan 23,33
  • Mahar 212
  • Park 305
  • Penfield Cafe
  • Rich 215,216 - installed
  • Tyler 11, 50, 200, 201, 202c, 203, 204, 216, 219, 219a - installed

If you feel there is an area on campus that should be outfitted with a phone that isn’t currently, please complete this Google form or contact the HelpDesk at x3456 or help@oswego.edu and we’ll review that space.
