K-State Alerts survey about emergency text messages

Submitted by Michael Bear

The K-State Alerts committee wants to hear from K-Staters why they are not signed up for emergency text messages. A random sample of K-Staters will receive a survey later today, May 1. Responses to this survey will help us to improve our emergency communications.

Currently, K-State Alerts texts are not sent to 75% of eligible K-Staters, which means that approximately 32,000 people are not immediately receiving emergency information — emergency emails are sent to all K-State email addresses. Follow these instructions on the K-State Police Department website to sign up for text messages and/or phone calls

If you have any questions or concerns regarding K-State Alerts or this survey contact Michael Bear, emergency management coordinator, at kstateem@k-state.edu or 785-532-6412.
