UM System Campus Alert Training

At the University of Missouri System, we are committed to providing a safe and secure working and learning environment for our faculty, staff and students. We help support that commitment by ensuring members of the University community are educated and informed about safety protocol through annual training courses like this one.


About the Training

Each of the four universities of the UM System has a number of safety programs designed to protect and to empower their communities. One of the most effective programs at each university is the emergency alert system. Emergency alert systems are used to notify the campus community when there is an emergency situation, including criminal threats and/or natural disasters.

The UM System Campus Alert Training module will help you better understand the emergency alert system at your location, and will teach you how to respond to emergency alert messages.

Upon completion of this training module, you will be able to:

  • Understand how to interpret campus emergency alerts.
  • Understand your options for responding to emergency alert messages.
