The State University of New York has coordinated its campus safety efforts with New York State's Office of Emergency Management by taking part in the State's all-hazard alert and notification system, New York Alert (NY Alert).  Each SUNY campus has been given the option of participating as a sub group to the NY Alert system to enhance their own campus safety efforts.

SUNY Plattsburgh implemented the SUNY NY Alert on campus in order to provide important notifications to the entire campus community in response to any serious health or safety event or situation on the campus. SUNY NY Alert is the only campus system that sends emergency notification alerts via email, recorded voice and text messages to multiple phone numbers (cell, home, work, local) and email addresses that is submitted into the system.  It is provided at no cost (except for potential charges incurred receiving voice and text messages sent by the system) and only a single email address is required to participate.

All students, faculty and staff have been automatically enrolled in SUNY NY Alert with their campus assigned e-mail address.  Additional methods or ways of being notified during an emergency may be added by logging into MyPlattsburgh and selecting "update my NY Alert Contact Info," under NY Alert. 

Please be sure to keep your information updated.  Although this service is important, it is voluntary and subscribers can opt-out at any time.
