Voice Emergency Notification System

In conjunction with the fire alarm system upgrades, the University is installing a Voice Emergency Communications System (VENS) in select campus buildings. The VENS system is capable of broadcasting emergency messages to building occupants of specific instructions in the event of an emergency. Speakers are affixed to the exterior of these buildings to permit notification of individuals who are in close proximity to these buildings.

CSU Alert

CSU has implemented a mass notification system referred to as CSU Alert. This system permits participants to receive emergency notifications via cell phone, text message, email or traditional telephone service.
