The University of Montevallo utilizes a state-of-the-art, rapid-alert system called UMAlert. This system provides members of the UM community with the most-advanced rapid communication program currently available for schools.
UMAlert enhances the timeliness of UM’s emergency communications and provides the University with a convenient and effective tool for informing students, faculty, and staff of human or natural threats. Through UMAlert, members of the University community, whether on campus or not, can be notified within moments of an urgent event. Emergency messages are sent via telephone (land line and cell), voice mail, text messaging, fax, and e-mail.
