The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and Tufts Technology Services (TTS) are pleased to announce a public beta testing period of a new way to receive emergency alert messages directly on your computer screen – Alertus Desktop Alert. OEM and TTS invite members of the Tufts community to install this software and provide feedback while we work to develop the service for wider use.
Alertus Desktop Alert running on your Mac or Windows computer can display a TuftsAlert message on your computer screen, and may be faster than text messaging, email, or telephone.
Please contact the TTS Service Desk to request installation of the software on your university-owned computer.
