StFX Alerts Emergency Notification System

What is this service?

StFX Alerts is a notification service that allows registrants to opt-in to receive emergency messages via text, email (i.e. can be a different address than your StFX-issued email), and/or voice message. The system will be an addition to, and does not replace, the tools currently used to communicate to campus -- use of campus-wide email, StFX social networks, local media, etc. 
Enrolment is not mandatory; however, we do encourage all members of the community to register.

Why is it useful?

By registering for StFX Alerts you will receive important time-sensitive information right away by having the alert sent to your personal electronic device (cell phone, smartphone, etc.) via text messaging, voice mail or email. 
It is important to note that StFX Alerts WILL ONLY BE SENT IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS. This includes scenarios or situations that affect the StFX Community, such as campus closures or potentially dangerous situations. Any message that does not meet the criteria of an emergency scenario will NOT be distributed via StFX Alerts.

How do I access this service?

Registration is simple. Please go to and click and sign up.  You do not need to use your stfx account credentials to sign up.  Your alerts account is separate from your stfx account and will have a separate password.  You can log in to your account at any time to update your contact information, as well as unsubscribe.

If you are having trouble managing your account IT Services can assist in making changes.
