Winter is here and the possibility of inclement weather in the Tri-state prompts us to evaluate how we receive information regarding school and business closings and emergency procedures. As a USI employee, you have access to a system that ensures you will receive the quickest and most reliable information in the event of a weather-related or campus-wide emergency.

 USI RAVEAlert messaging system, which has been available to USI students and employees since 2007, is a tool used by USI’s Office of Public Safety to communicate approved University information via text, email, or voice messaging.

“USI RAVEAlert gives critical and timely warnings about emergencies, severe weather, and other incidents impacting the University community,” said Stephen  Woodall, director of Public Safety. “In a situation where a RAVE message is warranted, priority is getting the message out so the University community is informed and can take necessary actions. All that’s required is for you to register online.”

To enroll, log in to myUSI, click the RAVEAlert icon on the dashboard channel, and agree to the terms of use. You will then have the option to add mobile phone numbers, email addresses, and landline numbers. There is also the capability to send yourself a test message to ensure that the alert system is working properly. You can add RAVEAlert for numbers 67283 and 226787 to your mobile phone contacts to identify RAVEAlert messages.

Rave does not charge subscribers to send or receive messages. Standard or other messaging charges apply depending upon your wireless carrier plan and subscription details. Registered users can opt out at any time.

The Office of Public Safety maintains 24-hour, seven-day-a-week coverage of the campus, including traffic control, security of physical assets, and safety of all employees, students, and guests of the campus. Emergency phones are located around the campus in the blue cylindrical structures with lights on top. Pressing the button will connect to the emergency number (7777).
