KALAMAZOO, Mich.—The WMU Alert emergency notification system is now available for the University's multiple regional locations.

An enhancement to the system that makes access to alerts available for WMU's eight regional locations was activated Jan. 12. The alerts are designed to notify members of the WMU community to emergencies and campus closures.

According to Cam Vossen, WMU emergency management administrator, WMU students and employees can pick up to two Extended University Programs sites in addition to the WMU main campus, and register to receive alerts from those locations. All WMU Alert recipients receive main campus alerts.

When those registered for alerts receive emergency and closure information, she says, the Caller ID on their phones will reflect the location for which the alert is being posted.

To register for WMU Alert, log in to GoWMU and click the alert logo in the WMU Campus Alert channel on the home tab. The only information required is a phone number.

WMU Alert for the main campus was launched in 2010. More than 20,000 people are now registered to receive alerts. In any campus emergency, additional information will be posted on the WMU home page at, in WMU News at and on the WMU Emergency Information Phone Line at (269) 387-1001.

Additional information for emergency events at the regional locations will be posted on the websites for those locations.
