Emergency Notification

(SMS Text Messaging) - The JMU Community can register to receive text and voice meassages over their cell phones during a campus emergency. Faculty, staff, and students may register through My Madison.
 
Students are required to complete a multistep check-in process using MyMadison. Incoming students complete the process as part of the Orientation OneBook. Returning students must complete registration before each Fall and Spring term.

A tutorial is available at http://isapps.jmu.edu/mymadison/wm_ssi/documents/How%20to%20Check-In_v2.0.pdf.  JMU students authorize JMU to send emergency notifications or may elect at this time not to receive cell phone emergency notifications during this process. 

Faculty and staff after being hired, will be prompted to complete an Emergency Notification step. They cannot access any other Employee functionality until they complete this step. JMU faculty and staff authorize JMU to send emergency notifications or may elect at this time not to receive cell phone emergency notifications during this process. An employee can re-validate by navigating to the Phone Numbers page within the Employee tab.
