Emergency Notification System (ENS)

The University of Regina's Emergency Notification System (ENS) is designed to ensure effective and timely warnings are delivered to students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus in the event of a life threatening situation when people must take immediate action to stay safe on campus.

The ENS leverages existing infrastructure, such as computer monitors and television screens across the main and College Avenue campuses, and also pushes messaging to the U of R Alertus app, and the University's Twitter Channel.

The ENS is not linked to the Fire Alarm System and will not activate when the fire alarm sounds.  Decisions to activate the ENS are made on a situation-by-sitution basis.
