Emergency Communication Systems
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.
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.
Larimer Emergency Telephone Authority allows you to receive alerts about off-campus emergencies and other important community news via your home, cell, or business phone, email, text messages, hearing impaired receiving devices, and more.
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.
Colorado State University utilizes Rave Mobile Safety's software for the Emergency Text Alert System. Rave is a leading provider of software solutions for individual, group and public safety.
