The first step to preparedness is Tune In. Take the following actions to ensure you can receive WashUAlerts and updates from Emergency Management. 

Download the NEW WashU Safe App on Android or iOS. The app includes important safety alerts, access to campus safety resources and enhanced features such as Friend Walk and Mobile Bluelight. Learn more about the WashU Safe App here.

Download the WUSTL app on Android or iOS and enable notifications. In addition to emergency alerts, the app has maps, dining menus and more. For instructions on enabling notifications, view this PDF.

Ensure your information is up to date in Workday/SIS. Your university phone number (if applicable) and email are automatically enrolled for WashUAlerts. However, to receive them on your personal cell phone or email address, you’ll need to enter that information.

Follow the Emergency Management Department @WashUReady on Facebook and X for up-to-date information.
