Emergency Messaging Information

Public Safety pleased to announce a new tool for emergency messaging.  With the assistance of the IT department and a grant from SUNY, we are using a software program called “ALERTUS.”  This program will allow the college to send an emergency messaging message to all networked computers simultaneously (in Batavia and at campus centers).  The program works in conjunction with GC3.  If we were to launch an Alertus emergency message, your screen would show something like this:

Alertus Screen

Public Safety can update information as an event unfolds.  We also want users to know you will NOT lose any unsaved work on your computer should a GCC Alertus message show up on your screen.  In the near future, we will be running an Alertus test.  We notify you of the test date prior to sending our message.

 Questions about Alterus can be directed to Steven Wise, Director of Campus Safety at spwise@genesee.edu
