About Emergency Notification System (ENS)
Campus safety is a vital concern at Central Washington University. CWU has established an Emergency Notification System (ENS) which provides multiple notice methods to alert individuals about situations that may pose a substantial threat to our community. The current components of the CWU ENS include website and desktop alerts, email alert updates, voice mail notification, text messaging, and public address systems (PA's) in police vehicles and designated buildings. In addition, CWU also has Emergency Blue Light phones located throughout campus and information available to the community regarding personal responses instructions should an emergency occur.
CWU Alert! is an internal first-response system, and is intended to notify the students, faculty and staff of CWU. In the event of a safety related incident or hazard at CWU, the CWU Alert! System may be used to notify students, faculty and staff of the occurring situation. Personnel on this system can be notified via email, phone call (land-line, cellular), and/or text message. All students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in this system. This system is not open to members of the public.
