OverviewIn the event of an emergency, Cal Poly Pomona will provide crucial information as quickly as the situation allows. Information will be distributed through the Safety Alert System. The system's communication channels include:
1. Office and mobile Phones
The system will call university office phones and personal cell phone numbers. In addition, mobile phones can receive an alert via text message. To receive the alerts, be sure your contact information is up to date on BroncoDirect.
2. University email
Email to your cpp.edu account is the official communication vehicle for the university.
3. Computer pop-up messages
University owned computers should receive a full-screen pop-up alert. The full-screen emergency messages will take over campus-owned computers that are active. Exit the screen by clicking the "Acknowledge" button.
4. Broadcast over the speakerphone
During an emergency, a message may be broadcast over the speakers of university-owned Cisco phones.
5. CPP home page
Urgent notifications will be placed on the university home page.

Information and updates will be provided on the university's Emergency Hotline at (866) 869-POLY (7659). The campus community is encouraged to add this number to their contact lists.
