Carson-Newman University has partnered with Live Safe to provide Emergency Notifications to faculty, staff and students. This service is optional but only takes a couple of minutes to sign up and we encourage every C-N employee and student to do so. This system will only be used for emergency notifications and other official notifications and will NOT be used for advertising. Some examples included Clery Act Required Emergency Notifications (Active Shooter, Predators on Campus, or Serious Criminal Offense) it will also be used for severer weather events such as thunderstorm warnings and tornado warnings. In the event of a campus emergency, a text message alert will be sent to your phone, an alert to the live safe application, and an e-mail to the address you selected when you signed up.
Please note that you may incur charges for text messaging, depending on the cell phone plan you have.
