Jackson State University's alert system enables emergency response team members to
communicate with students, faculty, and staff in minutes by sending a message via a number of contact methods – email, text messaging, and cell phones. Everbridge Aware for Campus Alerts will only be used during emergencies and for system testing.  This service is free to members of the Jackson State University campus community. However, standard rates apply for cell phone and SMS messages.
