When you are enrolled in the TuftsAlert system, you will receive text, phone, and/or email alerts during significant Tufts emergencies that may be critical to your—or your loved one’s—immediate safety.

Our crisis communications systems are powerful tools, but we cannot rely on technology alone in a crisis. In the event of an emergency, we all have the responsibility to help each other. It will take some time for messages to reach every person in the system. When you get an alert, follow the directions given and spread the word to others.
