George Mason University’s emergency notification system, Mason Alert, is designed to notify students, employees, and visitors of emergencies on campus and safety issues. All university students and employees who are issued a @gmu.edu or @masonlive.gmu.edu email are automatically enrolled in Mason Alert and provided with a Mason Alert account at alert.gmu.edu.
Your student is encouraged to log into his or her account and register family and friends’ contact information to ensure that you also receive emergency messages, if you so desire. This process facilitates systems maintenance and will automatically remove friends and family from the Mason Alert system when students graduate from Mason.
Family and friends who do not have a university email address can also receive notification by registering mobile phone numbers and email addresses through a community portal also available at alert.gmu.edu. If you have any questions or concerns about the Mason Alert Emergency Notification System, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
George Mason University also offers an emergency preparedness mobile application that contains information on how to respond to potential emergencies. The app includes fillable fields to document assembly areas, shelter areas, and emergency supplies that may be needed in a crisis. For more information on emergency preparedness as well as instructions on how to download the emergency preparedness app, please visit ready.gmu.edu.
