What is SpartanAlert?

Posted on Thursday, August 7th, 2014 by University Police under Police - General Information.

SpartanAlert is a website created by UNCG to post Emergency Alerts, Timely Notifications and general information for services provided through the university. For instance, during inclement weather several departments will post closing and opening times and any other important information that you may need to know to prepare for the upcoming situation.


Keeping you and our campus safe

No one likes to imagine a disturbance to the peace and safety of our university. While we hope that a crisis or emergency will never occur at UNCG, the university has made emergency preparedness a priority. It has in place an Emergency Planning and Response Team (EPART) and a Chancellor’s Crisis Policy Group which are ready to be activated if an urgent situation arises.

UNCG’s response system helps ensure campus-wide awareness of how to respond to crises. It is based on a strategically-developed and continually updated Crisis Communication Plan. By using multiple communication systems, the university will provide rapid notification to more than 18,000 students and 2,500 faculty and staff.

EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM:

The University Emergency Notification System is a communication tool used to notify the campus community about any situation or condition that could threaten the safety of individuals on campus. There are three types of messages delivered by the system:

  • Alerts (Emergency Alerts) – An incident or condition that requires immediate attention. (Required by the Clery Act)
  • Notices (Timely Warnings)  A message sent about crimes that have already occurred but represent an ongoing threat. (Required by the Clery Act)
  • Public Safety Announcements – A message sent out by the UNCG Police to inform the UNCG community of general safety information.
  • Test Messages – The system integrity is being tested.

The Emergency Notification System is designed to have overlapping methods of delivery that includes: Text messages, Twitter, Facebook, emails, network pop-ups, intercoms and outdoor public address system. Our goal is to keep you informed and safe.
