The University of Oregon employs a comprehensive, coordinated, and collaborative crisis and emergency management system to protect lives (human and animal), the environment, and property, and to continue necessary critical functions by building, sustaining, and improving the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, continue operations during, and recover from natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other human-caused crises or disasters.
The ALERTS page is part of the University of Oregon’s Crisis and Emergency Notification System.
The ALERTS page is used to provide emergency related information to the campus community, when and if it becomes available. The main webpage can be altered to provide incident specific information or simple alerts.
The ALERTS page allows the university to disseminate information beyond those directly associated with the university.
Information on the page is broken down into three categories:
- Information only – information about a situation that does not present an imminent threat but where the campus community may be concerned about safety or security.
- Urgent Information – an incident or condition that does not pose an imminent threat to life or safety, but that is of a nature where timely receipt of information or instructions may directly affect the well-being of the recipient.
- Emergency – an event, expected or unexpected, that poses an imminent threat to the health and safety of students, faculty and staff and requires immediate action.
