A note about safety from Father Jenkins

Author: Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.


Dear faculty and staff,

Your safety during a campus emergency is top priority, and rapid, effective communication during an event is of paramount importance.Last Spring I addressed the Notre Dame community concerning our plan to notify you individually and quickly in the event of a major campus-wide emergency.The University has now engaged Connect-ED, the leading mass notification system in the country.This new service will use multiple personal contact methodse-mail, telephone, cell phone, voicemail and text messagingto inform the Notre Dame family about an emergency situation.

To fully participate in this system, you will need to provide us with key contact information such as your cell phone number and an e-mail address in addition to your Notre Dame e-mail. The contact information you give us, through theMy Resourcestab of insideND, will be incorporated in the mass notification system, ready for use should an emergency arise. A forthcoming message from the Office of Human Resources will provide you with instructions for entering this information.

I request your full participation in the new Connect-ED alert system. Our hope and prayer is that we never need to use the system at Notre Dame, but we want to be certain that everything is in place should a major emergency occur.

Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.
