MU’s emergency notification system is composed of various communication tools that are used during emergencies and dangerous situations that threaten the health and safety of the campus community.
Every alert tool used by the university includes a recommended action for you to take. Please, follow those recommendations and only call the University of Missouri Police Department to report injuries or additional emergencies. Dispatchers must be free to respond to other health and safety emergencies and to obtain additional information concerning the unfolding emergency. You will receive follow-up MU Alerts until an All Clear has been issued.
Faculty, staff, students and parents are encouraged to register to receive emergency notifications. You may opt in or out of the various communication tools, such as text messages, so that you receive information in the way you prefer.
Remember, university officials are very judicious when choosing to alert the campus community.
Here is a brief synopsis of the communication tools used by MU’s emergency notification system:
The following official social media accounts will be updated as soon as information can be verified and will be monitored during an emergency situation. False and/or incorrect information posted by other users will be corrected by university staff during an emergency. Posts that constitute criminal acts, such as knowingly posting false information, will be reported to law enforcement.
