One of the most frequently asked questions is how can a parent / guardian receive emergency alerts from Binghamton University. While there are several ways you can receive the emergency notifications, one of the easiest ways is through the Alertus Mobile Application.
Alertus Mobile App
This mobile-device application allows anyone to receive alerts directly to their mobile device. The alerts will be received at the same time our students, staff and faculty receive the critical message. The message displayed in the app is the same message our students receive in an emergency text message.
To download and use the app:
- Visit the appropriate App Store for your mobile device's operating system.
- Search for and download "Alertus +" (the app icon is shown above).
- Following the download you will be prompted to enter a code in order to associate your mobile device with Binghamton University. The code is "balert".
You may install the app on as many devices as you like. You may delete the app any time you wish to stop receiving alerts.
