New York Alert

SUNY Oswego is one of many State University campuses that have adopted the emergency messaging platform New York Alert.

New York Alert is powered by Everbridge—a global company that provides enterprise software applications that automate and accelerate an organization’s operational response to critical events in order to keep people safe and businesses running. 

At SUNY Oswego, the system will only be used for emergency communication or to inform the campus community of a campuswide cancellation of classes due to severe winter weather. Only SUNY Oswego University Police and Office of Communications and Marketing staff will have the ability to send emergency alerts to members of the Oswego campus community.

New York Alert is a critical communications platform built on a secure, scalable and reliable infrastructure with multiple layers of redundancy to enable the rapid delivery of critical communications, with near real-time verification, over numerous devices and contact paths. The system allows e-mail, telephone and text messages to be sent automatically to all members of the campus community who have provided their contact information.
