The Buckeye Alert System is a cross platform notification system allowing the university to reach out to students and staff over nearly two dozen communication methods. All CFAES Drupal sites now participate in the Buckeye Alert System. When the university issues an alert our sites will display the message at the top of our pages with a red banner. The addition of the Buckeye Alert System does not interfere with any other site functionality and our websites will behave normally during an Alert.
For more about how the University communicates across the campus in an emergency see the Department of Public Safety Website: https://dps.osu.edu/alert-notices.
