Griffon Alert

Text Messaging and E-mail

signup2The Griffon Alert text messaging and e-mail system is designed to enhance and improve communication so that all members of the Missouri Western campus community (students, staff and faculty only) can stay informed in the event of an emergency that affects all or part of the campus.

Missouri Western has contracted with Omnilert to provide the service, which will allow students, faculty and staff to be notified via text message in the event of an emergency. The message can also be sent to a designated e-mail address in addition to the official Missouri Western e-mail address, which is automatically added.

The system will be used only for emergency contact purposes. Griffon Alert text messaging and e-mail will not be used to distribute advertising or other unsolicited content. Please note that subscribers to Griffon Alert text messaging and e-mail will pay no fees for the service, other than any regular fees associated with text messaging services.
