Your safety is Western Connecticut’s top concern. In support of that, we recently launched an initiative to further strengthen our emergency preparedness and communication plan using Everbridge—a leading provider of critical communication solutions. This system enables Western Connecticut to deliver critical information to our Western family about a wide variety of situations, including campus safety alerts, public health emergencies, campus evacuations, and class cancellations.
Western’s updated alert system enables university officials to communicate with students, staff, and faculty in minutes by sending a message through multiple contact methods—including email, text messaging, and phone calls. This is a free service to members of the Western community.
