K-State Alerts

Division of Public Safety
Stephen Broccolo

K-State Alerts is Kansas State University’s emergency notification system. It gives campus authorities the ability to communicate emergency information quickly to the university community using some or all of the following channels:

  • Text messaging
  • Automated phone calls
  • Broadcast emails to all accounts
  • Alert beacons
  • Police public address systems
  • Campus carillon in the Anderson Hall tower
  • Tornado warning sirens
  • K-State staff carrying radios
  • Postings to the K-State website

To receive emergency notifications by text messaging or automated phone call, you must enroll in K-State Alerts. Only current faculty, staff and students with an active eID are eligible to sign up for text and phone call alerts. This includes K-Staters at the Manhattan, Salina and Olathe campuses, distance students and those at research and extension offices. Eligible K-Staters can add contact information of parents, children and spouses when they sign up.
