Emergency Services


The ALERUS is UCR's Emergency Notification System. The Belltower will alert the campus in the event of an emergency with an audible broadcast message. To ensure the system is operational, it will be tested on the First Friday of the month at 12:00pm (Noon). The approximate duration of the test will be around one minute, or as long as it takes to run a complete test cycle. The next test is Friday, March 2nd.



We are pleased to offer the following online services through our Emergency Management program.
