Jackson State University has implemented the Everbridge Aware for Campus Alerts emergency notification system (ENS) to communicate information campus-wide to students, faculty and staff before, during and after hazardous events. The alert system cycles through each and every communication device — including mobile phones, landlines, BlackBerry smart phones/wireless PDAs, e-mail, SMS and instant messengers — in the contact path order specified by individual preference, until messages are delivered and confirmed by recipients.
