Emergency Notification System

There may be rare occasions during an emergency situation when it is necessary to attempt to contact the entire university community in a timely manner. Emergency notification will be initiated by the department of Campus Public Safety, office of the vice president of student life, or university public information office in most situations. The primary means of communication for George Fox University consists of the following:

  • Campus email system
  • SMS text message (to cellular phone numbers provided by students as an emergency contact) using the "FOXALERT" emergency alert system
  • "Runners"
