In the event of an emergency, we’d like to reach you as quickly as possible, wherever you may be. Yeshiva University has implemented a text- and voice-messaging emergency alert system (AlertFind) that will be used as an important means of providing emergency alerts, timely warnings, and notification of major campus or facility shutdowns.

AlertFind will not be used for general announcements – only issues presenting a threat to community safety or situations that require time-sensitive distribution of information.

We urge you to register your cell phone or SMS (short message service), text device, BlackBerry and even land-line home phone with the service. AlertFind allows you to register multiple devices, and you can be notified at different locations via different devices simultaneously.

For security purposes, an active YU email account is required for registration. Parents who wish to receive notifications through the Alert Find system should add their contact information to their child's registered account, as YU student accounts allow for multiple contact numbers.

This system is important to your safety, and we ask that you read all the pages here before registering. When you're ready to register, please go to Getting Started for further instructions.
