Emergency Notification System

Text message alert system

As part of ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of the campus community, Salisbury University has implemented an emergency notification system that sends text and voice messages in the event of an emergency.

Students, faculty and staff must register to receive the emergency alerts. More than 95 percent of incoming freshmen have already signed up.

"This system greatly enhances our ability to alert the campus community of dangerous events in real time," said Edwin Lashley, chief of university police. "A quick notification will help keep the campus community out of harm's way."

To register, faculty, staff and students with GullNet access should:
(click here if you do not have GullNet access)

  2. Click "Emergency Notification System" (a blue link on the left-hand side)
  3. Select “I choose to have voice or text phone notification of an emergency alert.” 
  4. Select place of residence   (Students only) 
  5. Enter your cell phone number (10 digits, no dashes)

    *Students with no cell phone may choose to provide a land line phone number
  6. Enter cellular carrier (e.g. Verizon, AT&T, etc.) 
  7. Select preferred message type - text (recommended) or voice 
  8. Click "Save"

Faculty and staff without GullNet access may download and print a registration form from the Help Desk Web site

The form, or GullNet, may also be used to update contact information or cancel service at any time. Students, faculty and staff are highly encouraged to sign up for this service and should keep contact information current to maintain the system's accuracy.

The purpose of the emergency notification system is to provide the campus community with quick information during an emergency. Home telephones outside the local area should not be registered.
