Emergency Text Alert System

Updated August 2015

The Emergency Text Alert System is used to send alerts in the event of an emergency on the Fort Collins campus. The system is only used during a safety emergency or unexpected closing of the campus, such as a snow day.



Students can subscribe to receive emergency text message alerts through RAMweb. After logging into RAMweb using your eID, click the Manage My Student Record link under the Records section.

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff can subscribe to receive emergency text message alerts through CAP (Campus Administrative Portal). After logging into CAP using your eID, click the Emergency Text Alerts link on the right-hand navigation under the Quick Applications section.

Updating / Unsubscribing

Participants are responsible for keeping information up to date.

The system and the university do not keep track of subscribers' physical locations. Faculty on sabbatical, students who are away on semester abroad, for a holiday or spring break, or any other subscriber who is out of the area, will continue receiving RAVE alerts until they unsubscribe via using the links above.
