Tufts University is pleased to announce enhancements to the Tufts Emergency Alert System. Following a thorough review of available technology, the university has contracted with Rave Mobile Safety to provide Rave Alert as the software that powers the Tufts Emergency Alert System beginning today. The university may use the alert system in the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the Tufts community.
What you need to know:
Rave Alert will give the university the continued ability to quickly send text, voice, and email messages and will also make it easier for you to maintain your emergency contact information; however, you must provide your contact information to be included in the system. Visit emergency.tufts.edu/alert for more information and the complete policy.
This enhancement is the result of a continuing collaboration among Tufts Technology Services, University Relations, and the Office of Emergency Management, with assistance from Purchasing.
