Register & Stay Informed!
With JeffALERT Jefferson can send simultaneous alerts in minutes through text messaging, voicemail and email to numerous devices, such as cellular phonesand pagers and phone calls to cellular, home and work phones. But the system is only as good as the contact information you provide to us. We urge you to register/update your cellular phone numbers, pager numbers and office numbers and home numbers so that Jeferson can effectively notify you during emergency situations.
Since the JeffALERT system is used to notify you in an emergency situation, we strongly recommend that you provide contact information for YOU, the subscriber. Provide the contact numbers you are most likely to check/answer should a message be sent to you… most likely, while you are on campus.
