The Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response and the Augusta University Police Department are transitioning to an improved system for urgent mass communications.

This system will enhance our ability to communicate with you effectively before, during and after emergency or critical events.

If your contact information is in our emergency alert system, you will receive a text message and email from Augusta University Alert.

Please make sure not to mark this sender as spam or junk. Both CEPaR and the Augusta University Police will be communicating with you using this tool going forward.

If your contact information is not in the system, or if it needs to be updated, please visit the CEPaR homepage.

As always, CEPaR and Augusta University Police have your safety in mind and we will continue to explore the latest most effective ways to keep you safe and secure.

Stay safe out there, and let us know how best to assist you.
