Updating Personal Information
If you choose to enroll with the WSU ALERT Crisis Communications System (CCS) you must update the Pullman Emergency Information section of the myWSU portal whenever your personal/cell phone information changes. This crisis contact information becomes a part of your WSU personnel or student record. (Students, Faculty and Staff must still update the Change of Address area in the myWSU portal in the Address section for other official contact information.)
Text Messaging Fees May Apply
You may incur text messaging fees from your wireless service provider depending upon your service plan. You are responsible for any applicable text messaging fees for any WSU ALERT CCS notifications received, in addition to up to twelve WSU ALERT CCS test messages that may be sent annually.
Personal telephone numbers and email addresses sought by WSU ALERT CCS service as provided by the Everbridge Company will be used exclusively for delivering WSU ALERT crisis and emergency notifications.
For this purpose, WSU may share this information with the Everbridge Company. The personal telephone numbers and email addresses WSU ALERT collects will be maintained in your personnel or student record. WSU will maintain the confidentiality of such records to the extent permitted by law.

The WSU ALERT notification system is offered on a best effort basis. WSU offers no guarantee that it will be able to send voice or text messages during every crisis or emergency or that such messages will be received on your wireless or landline devices.
Do Not Reply To WSU ALERT Messages other than to Confirm Receipt of the Message per Instructions Provided
WSU ALERT notifications will be prefaced with WSU ALERT in the message, and the from-address for WSU ALERT email messages will be firstname.lastname@example.org
To Report an Emergency, Dial 911
NOTE: When dialing 911 from a WSU Pullman campus number, there will be a 7 second delay in connecting. WAIT! DO NOT HANG UP!
