What if there is a fire in your building or a lockdown on campus? What if severe weather strikes, leaving Millersville’s campus covered in snow? In the event of an emergency on campus or a weather-related delay or cancellation, make sure you are signed up to receive MU Alert, the campus cell phone text messaging and email alert system.

Signing up for MU Alert is easy and you only have to do it one time, simply go to www.mualert.millersville.edu/, click “new user” and enter the required information.

When receiving MU Alerts, follow the instructions in the message and wait for follow-up messages. Up-to-date information will also be posted on Millersville’s homepage, www.millersville.edu/.

“Millersville University has developed a systematic approach to emergency communication that uses multiple methods of communication including MU Alert, mass text message and email alerts; mass notification system, siren and public address alerts; reverse-911, mass phone alerts and website alerts and updates,” said Pat Weidinger, Millersville’s director of safety & environmental health.

“In an emergency, timely and accurate communication of information to those who need it, is critical,” said Weidinger. “We encourage faculty, staff and students to sign up.”
