It is activated to contact you when there is an immediate threat to safety or health affecting the campus community. WarnMe/Nixle can alert you by phone, text message, or emai- you choose the best ways to reach you. By default WarnMe will send a message to your Official Email address in the CalNet directory (typically your address). To receive WarnMe emergency warnings via any other method, such as by text or phone, go to WarnMe site and indicate your preferences.
