Sign up for NY-Alert
Thursday, December 12, 2013


NY Alert
SUNY NY-Alert is a system of messages for SUNY campuses only.

SUNY NY-ALERT FAQs
 

Members of the SUNY Fredonia campus community are urged to sign up for NY-Alert, a secure, web-based emergency alert system implemented on campus and created and maintained by SUNY Administration and the New York State Emergency Management Office. 

Alerting students, faculty, and staff to safety concerns

It is the primary (although one of many) emergency notification tools used to send information regarding serious safety issues to the entire campus community in response to any event or situation which causes a serious safety concern. Trained, authorized personnel on the campus will be able to warn students, faculty and staff who have signed-up to the system of an impending emergency, and provide timely and ongoing information to protect lives and minimize campus disruption. 

NY-Alert is a major component of the mass communication system which we use during an emergency, and is the only alert system which will send messages directly to students, faculty and staff without having to be logged into email.

Text, e-mail, voice or fax messages

NY-Alert is capable of sending text, e-mail, and recorded voice messages to multiple addresses and phone numbers that persons provide to the system. Participation is widely encouraged but completely voluntary. It is provided at no cost (with the exception of any charges assessed by a person’s wireless service provider), and only a single e-mail address is required to participate.

Instructions for Students

1. Go to the SUNY Fredonia homepage

2. Click on the Your Connection link (found on the lowest section or in the e-services tab)

3. Log in with your Fred ID# or Social Security Number and Password

4. Click on the “Personal Information” link on the Main Menu

5. Click on the last option on the Personal Information menu, “Emergency Alert Contact Information (NY-Alert)”

6. a. If you have not previously registered for the NY-Alert system, you will be given two choices. Click the first option, “I would like to register for this service now and receive any alerts sent to the campus community.” Then click CONTINUE. 

i. Enter an e-mail address to receive NY-Alert messages, then click CONTINUE.

ii. Enter phone numbers to receive text, voice, and/or fax messages, then click CONTINUE.

iii. Confirm the information by clicking, “Register me with NY-Alert,” located at the bottom. You should then see the confirmation: "You have successfully registered for SUNY NY-Alert."

6. b. If you have already signed up for NY-Alert and need to update your information, you will be given three choices. Click the second option, "I would like to continue with the NY-Alert System but I need to alter the displayed contact information," then click CONTINUE. Review your information and make changes as needed.

 

Instructions for Faculty and Staff:

1. Go to the SUNY home page

2. Click on Faculty, Staff and Employment

3. Click on SUNY Secure Sign-On in the right-hand column; Select “Fredonia” from the drop-down menu and then sign on using your SUNY Fredonia User ID and Password.

4. Click on SUNY Emergency Contact system in the right-hand column

5. Complete the form as indicated; it will ask for your name, affiliation (employee, student or other) campus, e-mail address(es), telephone numbers (with area code) for voice and text messaging, text messaging provider, and fax number (if applicable).
**When inserting telephone numbers, don’t use dashes to separate numbers. *

6. Then click Submit at the bottom of the form, which will take you to another form to review, and then click Confirm. You will receive a message that your entry was submitted successfully to the SUNY Emergency Alert System.
