AlertBG: The next step in campus safety

When trouble strikes, a quick response in notifying people can be vital. The University is preparing to launch AlertBG, a text-messaging program that will be used to communicate with students, faculty and staff in case of emergencies on campus.

The new program, which adds another dimension to the campus’s overall crisis management plan, is set to go into effect tomorrow (Oct. 30). AlertBG increases BGSU’s ability to communicate a variety of warnings, such as severe weather, campus closings, canceled classes, building closures and crimes in progress. The campus police department will send the messages. “The system will be used strictly for emergency situations,” said Police Chief James Wiegand.
