The college will provide the campus community with timely notice in the form of Safety Alerts of any situation that may pose a threat to the community in a manner that does not divulge the identity of the person(s) who reported the incident. Safety Alerts may come in the form of bulletins, via campus e-mail and campus posting procedures, messages from the college's Office of Communication, the Student Notes publication, and notices via the campus media such as Campus Update or the student media through the Oswegonian. Timely Warnings and Safety Alerts will be disseminated in a coordinated manner through collaboration between University Police, Student Affairs, Office of Communications and the college administration.
It is important that each student sign up to receive safety alert messages. Students, faculty and staff can find instructions for signing up at the college's New York Alert website. The NY Alert system is tested weekly to publishers and each semester to all enrolled users. By enrolling the college will be able to provide email, text, cell and hard line phone alert notifications when an emergency occurs that may impact the safety of the campus. In addition to this system, the college uses digital TV stations, the Office of Communications website and various other siren and broadcast systems to notify the community when an emergency is occurring.
