ParkAlert is a mass notification system that can alert Park University students, faculty, staff and parents, as well as the general public, with time-sensitive messages via texts, voice, e-mail and social media. ParkAlert will be used to only notify the University community with emergency messages and/or weather-related alerts and updates — it will not be used for advertising or other unsolicited content.
ParkAlert is designed to allow participants to choose the Park University campus center they attend (or is in their area) and receive messages related only to that specific campus center. Powered by Omnilert Network e2Campus, ParkAlert adds another immediate notification mechanism to the University's existing methods for alerts.
Currently, the following types of alert options are available:
- Short Message Service (SMS)/Text — Text message alerts to your mobile phone(s) that you register in our system.
- Voice — Similar to the text message, this service delivers a voice alert to your registered phones.
- E-Mail — An e-mail alert is sent to your registered e-mail address (it is suggested that you register an e-mail address that is not a Park University account since the University's Office of Communication or Office of Campus Safety will send an e-mail message to Park e-mail addresses.
- Social Media — Alerts can be posted directly to social media pages such as Facebook and Twitter (this will be used on a case-by-case basis.)
Questions/concerns about registration or accessing your account, as well as questions about the messages should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
