Kettering Alert is an emergency notification system that allows the University to send critical news and information to the Kettering community during campus emergencies, including weather-related closures. Students, faculty, and staff may opt-in to receive cell phone text and voicemail messages, alerting them to campus emergencies and recommending a course of action to promote safety. Examples of emergencies that may result in text and voicemail notification include hazardous materials spills, weapons-related violence, weather-related closures, etc.
Below, you will find instructions for adding and maintaining up-to-date information so you receive these important messages. The University will only use this method of communication for emergency situations in which timely notification is critical. You must opt-in to participate in the Kettering Alert text and voicemail emergency communications system.
