TuftsAlert Test

TuftsAlert-phonePlease take a minute now to visit emergency.tufts.edu/alertupdate and confirm your contact information in TuftsAlert. On Wednesday, September 14 there will be a test of TuftsAlert.

The most important information you can provide is a text-capable mobile number, if you have one. Non-text mobile phones and landline phones can also be provided to receive voice notification messages. The information will remain confidential, used only to contact you during an emergency.

In the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation, Tufts University may notify the community using TuftsAlert (emergency alert system). TuftsAlert is designed to notify students, faculty, and staff by sending text, voice, and email alerts with information that may be critical to your safety; however, you must provide your contact information to be included in the system. Visit emergency.tufts.edu/alert for more information and the university policy on emergency notification.

In February we announced two new optional services to allow you to receive alerts for Tufts campuses other than your primary campus, and to get a text notification in the event of a weather-related closing. Visit emergency.tufts.edu/alerts/opt-in for more information and to sign up for optional alerts and closing notifications.

This summer we welcomed the SMFA community to Tufts. Please visit emergency.tufts.edu/alert/smfa for information about the transfer of contact information from the SMFA Rave Alert system. Alerts for either the Boston-SMFA campus or the Medford/Somerville campus will be sent to members of both campuses.

If you need assistance please contact the TTS Service Desk at (617) 627-3376, x73376, or it@tufts.edu.
