Emergency Notification Procedure
Along with the ENS, MSU Denver follows the Auraria Higher Education Center campus emergency preparedness procedures, policies and standards.
Auraria’s telephone notification system is also used in emergencies, sending a broadcast message to all campus phones.
After the ENS system has been activated, the MSU Denver Office of Marketing & Communications will implement the following procedures:
1. A red “EMERGENCY ALERT IN PROGRESS” image will be displayed on the MSU Denver homepage as a virtual notification.
2. Virtual audiences will be alerted through Facebook and Twitter accounts.
3. Faculty, staff and students will receive an urgent email message to their msudenver.edu addresses.
In addition, faculty and staff are asked to assist with emergency notification through verbal announcements in their classrooms and labs.
Once the alert has been lifted by the proper authorities, the “EMERGENCY ALERT IN PROGRESS” image will be removed from the University's homepage.
