Flash ALERTS is Kent State’s official emergency text notification system to alert subscribers of critical information no matter what time it is or where they are in the world. Flash ALERTS expands the university's ability to send critical news and information to the university community during campus emergencies.
During a campus emergency situation, Flash ALERTS will send you a message delivering critical information. Flash ALERTS will be an enhancement to the several existing communications tools used by the university to reach students, faculty and staff, including the Kent State home page, alert monitor system, broadcast email alerts, broadcast voicemail messages and public media outlets.
Flash ALERTS is available to anyone with an active @kent.edu email account, including students, faculty, staff, alumni and emeriti. If you have any trouble signing up for Flash ALERTS, please contact the help desk at http://support.kent.edu.
