The Jackson State University Department of Public Safety is enhancing the university’s emergency notification system to better communicate vital information to the campus community. This system will distribute quick and reliable alerts via text messages, phone calls and/or emails to faculty, staff and students during times of inclement weather, campus closures, campus safety concerns and other emergencies.
These enhancements require all faculty, staff and students to sign up for emergency notifications through their JSU P.A.W.S. accounts. If you had already enrolled for emergency alerts, you must re-enroll through your JSU P.A.W.S. account (see instructional images below). The system will relay emergency information through mobile phones, landlines, smartphones/wireless PDAs, email, SMS and/or instant messaging — in the order specified by individual preference — until messages are delivered and confirmed by recipients.
The deadline to sign up is March 31, 2014. If you don’t sign up, you will no longer receive emergency alerts from JSU.
