In a time of emergency, the UNCG Police Department activates several types of notification to keep the UNCG Community aware and informed on how to respond during crises. The UNCG Police follow a simple phrase when dealing with an emergency: ACTNOW!
You can receive emergency notification by:
AM Radio Station 1640
This channel will broadcast updated information during an emergency. More than 120 administrative offices on campus have hand-powered radios to receive information during power outages. The messages will also be webcast as streaming audio.
Campus Social Networks
All emergency alerts and notifications will be posted on the UNCG Police Department's Facebook and Twitter pages. As well as the University's Facebook and Twitter pages.
Text Messaging & Email
Emergency notification through text is available to students, faculty and staff who have signed up and provided their cell phone contact information through their UNCGenie accounts. We also send an email to the entire campus community — every student, faculty or staff member — through their UNCG mailbox.
Network Pop-Up (Computer Screen) and RSS Feed
Alert messages will be delivered to all computers logged onto the internet and running this program. New campus computers will have the software installed as a part of the standard campus image. Additionally, users can subscribe to the alert message RSS feed. Information about downloading the alert message pop-up software and subscribing to the RSS feed is available at http://notify.uncg.edu/.
Outside “Blue Light” Telephone, Public Address System
More than 150 emergency phone stations are located around the UNCG campus. Several are equipped to deliver emergency public address messages to alert anyone within several feet of an active emergency.
Warn the Classrooms
Emergency announcements and call-ins can be heard or made through a speaker system in classrooms that is handled through the Information Technology network.
Other types of notification will also be made by University Relations and other departments, such as:
Emergency information will be posted on the university homepage (www.uncg.edu) and on the University's emergency information web site (www.uncg-campus.info). During a major crisis this emergency information site will replace UNCG's homepage.
Emergency and Adverse Weather Telephone Line
You can call to check on alert messages that will be posted at (336) 334-4400 and also on UNCG’s main number (336) 334-5000.
Other Email Communication
Lists have been created to inform the resident student population through the Office of Housing & Residence Life, and to inform parents and family members who have signed up through the Office of Orientation & Family Programs.
