Don’t wait! Sign up for the NY Alert Emergency Notification System.

All Herkimer College students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to sign up for NY Alert. An initiative of the Governor’s Office, NY Alert allows you to sign up to receive emergency alert messages, originating from the State Emergency Management Office or from our own campus, via email, cell phone, text message, and fax.

You are allowed to choose any or all of these methods and to list up to two email addresses and three cell phone numbers. It is recommended that if you request text messages, you also select one of the other methods, as there are limitations to the text message option.

To receive emergency messages through NY Alert, you must sign up!

Faculty and students will be given the option to sign up for NY Alert upon logging into Self Service Banner.

College staff who do not have a Banner ID will sign up at www.suny.edu/sunyalertsec with the same username and password used to log into your Herkimer College computer account. You will then select the method(s) by which you would like to receive alert messages and the related contact information.

If you wish to unsubscribe from future NY Alert notifications, please email programmers@herkimer.edu.
