DEMOC manages Georgetown University's emergency notification system, HOYAlert. The system is designed to enable University officials to send rapid, concise, and effective emergency alerts to members of the Georgetown University community in the event of a major incident affecting the Main, Medical, or Law Center campuses. HOYAlert allows users to receive alerts via multiple modalities:
- SMS text messaging to cell phones and PDAs,
- voice (phone and voicemail) options to non-GU numbers,
- email to non-GU email addresses.
HOYAlert may be used to notify members of the university community in the event of a campus emergency or closure. Phone calls, text messages, and emails may be sent at any time as incidents occur, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Effective December 19, 2012, all inclement weather closings and delays will be announced via HOYAlert text and email (not voice). No broadcast email will be sent, however those who have not enrolled in HOYAlert can check the university's status by calling (202) 687-7669.
