Notification System

Level 1: Planned Incident

These are incidents that typically allow a period of time to prepare or plan a response. Examples of these incidents are hurricanes, inclement weather, power or utility outage, and related campus disruptions. The minimum emergency notification system components which maybe used:

  • Web page – cnualert.info
  • Email messaging
  • Other system component(s) deemed appropriate by the Unified Command Team

Level 2: Localized Incident

These are incidents that typically affect a specific building or a specific area on campus and do not affect the entire campus community. Although these incidents are more specific to an area or building, the required response is more immediate than in a planned incident. Examples of these incidents are hazardous materials spills, fires, bomb threats and suspicious packages. The minimum emergency notification system components which maybe used:

  • Web page – cnualert.info
  • Text messaging
  • Email messaging
  • Other system component(s) deemed appropriate by the Unified Command Team

Level 3: Immediate Catastrophic Incident

These incidents require an immediate acknowledgement and broadcast of emergency conditions in the interest of public safety. Examples of these incidents are hostile intruders, terrorist incidents, mass violence and nuclear power catastrophes. The minimum emergency notification system components which maybe used:

  • Siren / public address
  • Web page – cnualert.info
  • Text messaging
  • Email messaging
  • Other system component(s) deemed appropriate by the Unified Command Team

CNU Police Alert

When an incident occurs, the following tools will be used:

  • Web page – cnualert.info

Depending on the nature of the alert, the following tools may be used:

  • Text messaging
  • Email messaging to mass notification subscribers
  • Email messaging to students, faculty and staff
  • Hard-copy notices posted throughout campus

Please note that the campus-wide emergency siren system will only be sounded during an immediate, catastrophic incident.
