Emergency information, when and where you need it

AlertVU rapidly sends messages to the delivery points the user has chosen—cell phone (voice or text), landline, and Vanderbilt email account—in the event of an emergency that poses an imminent threat or danger to the Vanderbilt community. Examples of such a threat include a tornado forecast to strike Vanderbilt or an active shooter on campus.
