In the Event of a Campus Emergency Wake Forest will use multiple methods to alert you swiftly, including:

Wake Alert: The University’s Wake Alert website is the primary source of information on emergencies.

Outdoor Warning System: An alert message will be broadcast outdoors using speakers that activate a siren and announce a brief prerecorded or live message.

Text Messaging: The University will send brief text messages to students, faculty, and staff who have registered their cell phones on WIN. Undergraduates must register for the messages by providing their cell phone numbers when they register for classes each fall.

Campus Cable TV System: Televisions connected to the campus cable TV system will display alert messages. Such messages will appear on televisions in public areas, as well as in students’ residence hall rooms and faculty/staff offices.

WFU Google Mail: The University will send an email to all WFU Google Mail addresses of students, staff, and faculty.

Twitter: Wake Alert website announcements will appear on Twitter.
