The University of Notre Dame has implemented ND Alert, a comprehensive emergency notification system, to communicate with campus constituents in the event of a major emergency. Components of ND Alert include the following:
In the event of an emergency, the site will serve as the primary source of information about the nature of the incident, how to remain safe, and after the event, the point at which safety has been restored.
Mass Notification System
The ND Alert notification system allows the University to contact students and employees quickly through multiple electronic technologies. This system engages email, telephone, cell phone, and text messaging as well as indoor and outdoor speakers to inform the Notre Dame campus community about an emergency situation. To fully participate in this system, students, faculty, and staff need to provide the University with key contact information such as a cell phone number and an email address in addition to their Notre Dame email.

Digital Message Boards
In the event of an emergency, ND Alert messages are displayed on campus digital sign boards located in various campus facilities.
