PolyAlert Campus Emergency Notification System

The PolyAlert Emergency Notification System is a text messaging service that will distribute brief messages in situations posing imminent physical threats to the campus community. By using Short Messaging System (SMS) technology, the system can convey messages to registered mobile phones, Blackberries, wireless PDAs, smart phones and satellite phones.

You must have your cell phone registered to receive these emergency text message notifications. Either click on the logo below or go to your My Calpoly Portal and click on the Personal Info tab to register.
