Desktop Alert! Client

Desktop Alert! Is an internal first-response system. It is intended to notify the students, faculty and staff of CWU by broadcasting an emergency message to all desktop computers that are "on" and connected to the CWU local area network. All CWU maintained computers will automatically be part of this system. Computers owned by students connected to the University's Residential network (ResNet) must opt-in to this system.

Please note that there will be a portion of CWU owned as well as student owned computers that will require the user to download the Desktop Alert! client. CWU owned computers that are not logging into the Active Directory system, or student owned computers using the ResNet system, will need to install this agent. For those users, click on the "Client Download" link below. You will need to select the proper computer type (Windows or Macintosh) and follow the directions to download the Desktop Alert! client.
