The Wright Institute Emergency Alert System

Wright Institute's Emergency Alert is an instant, mass notification system that enables students, faculty, and members of the staff to receive updates and alerts on cell phones (voice or text message) and email accounts.

This service is part of our larger strategy to enhance communications during an emergency. Our goal is to increase safety on the Wright Institute campus.

Wright Institute Emergency Alert is a completely voluntary service provided to the college community and is powered by Omnilert Network e2Campus. No advertisements or non-emergency alerts will be sent to you. You must sign up for the service in order to receive alerts. And since this is a voluntary service, you may choose to opt-in or opt-out of the service at any time.

You only have to register one time. You may register by visiting: http://alert.wi.edu. Once you have an account, you can add to, or change, how you receive your messages. Links in the left side bar take you to the appropriate sign up page.
