MacEwan Alert: What it is and how to sign up

Submitted by on 2019/10/16 – 8:30 am

MacEwan Alert is a mass notification system that will notify students and employees of any incidents and actions that may need to be taken in the event of a campus emergency. Emergency incidents may include anything from severe weather and building closures, to violent incidents and other threats to the safety of the campus community.

Alerts are automatically sent to all university email accounts. They can also be sent via text message to those who sign up.

Sign up for MacEwan Alert text message notification.

Students and employees can add or update their mobile phone numbers by visiting myPortal.MacEwan.ca and following the directions on the landing page. These instructions may also be accessed by visiting MacEwan.ca/MacEwanAlert. Ensure that you select Phone Type “MOBILE” when you enter your phone number information. That’s it. You don’t need to download anything or install an app. Adding your mobile number to the system means that you will automatically receive a text message if there is an emergency on campus, or when the system is tested annually.

Thank you for helping to keep the university a safe place to study and work.
