Emergency Alert Information for the KU Campus Community

In the event of an emergency, timely and accurate communication of information is critical.

Kutztown University has developed a plan for emergency communication that utilizes multiple and redundant methods of communication and notification in order to maximize the effectiveness and reach of the emergency information.

This page details the methods of emergency communication that KU may employ, on a case-by-case basis, in the event of an emergency.
