Emergency Notification System

Emergency Notification System

In fall 2010, Western implemented Rave Mobile Safety as our primary emergency notification system. This system has had tremendous success across the country.

Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to register for this service. All Western students receive an email at their Western email address asking them to sign-up with Rave Mobile Safety. Students will continue to receive messages requesting that they sign-up until they have done so. Western will conduct tests of the Rave emergency notification system periodically throughout the semester to ensure the system is working properly.

Western will only use the Alert broadcast messaging services for emergencies.

To sign up for Rave Mobile Safety alerts, please go to:

Use your Western log in to enter the site and sign up.

Western and Rave Mobile Safety will have all participating faculty, staff, and students’ mobile phone numbers and email addresses on file. If there is an emergency on campus or in the community, you will receive a mass text message.

For general questions about the system, please contact the Western RAVE Alert Student Affairs Help Desk Manager at 970.943.2232, or you may stop by the Office of Student Affairs in Taylor Hall 301.


Western supports the Run. Hide. Fight. model in active shooter situations. For more information, please check out the video below produced by California State University.
