Alerts Page Posts Campus Cancellations and Closings

February 08, 2010

Public safety officials of the City of Pittsburgh strongly encouraged the university to cancel classes Monday and call off all non-essential personnel, in light of what they have assessed to be a continuing dangerous situation for drivers and pedestrians as a result of this weekend's storm.

Stay informed on campus cancellations and closings by using the Pittsburgh Campus Alerts web page at http://www.cmu.edu/alert/. You are also encouraged to register for Alert Now Emergency Notification Service (details below).

All members of the Carnegie Mellon community are encouraged to register for the Alert Now Emergency Notification Service, which sends voice and/or text messages to registered phones in the event of a campus emergency. You can register for the service online at https://my.cmu.edu/site/main/page.alert (when you click on this link, you will need to login with your username and password to access this page). You can unsubscribe from this service at this Web site as well.

Your contact information will be treated confidentially. You will be contacted by the Alert Now system only if there is an incident/event that threatens public safety or during tests of the system in the spring and fall semesters. Note that the text and voice options may carry a nominal fee for recipients, depending on your cell phone carrier and cell phone plan.

Alert information also will be posted in a special area at the top of www.cmu.edu and my.cmu.edu directing users to more information on this site. These sites will be updated regularly in case of emergency.
