Emergency Notification System

Georgetown University will alert you to emergency situations using the Emergency Notification System (ENS). ENS on the main and medical campuses is composed of HOYAlert and the Campus Alert System (a network of steam whistles placed around the main campus). It is important for all members of the Georgetown community to familiarize themselves with the different alerting systems and associated emergency actions. There are also regional alerting systems that will inform you about emergency situations in the DC Metro area that may impact the Georgetown community, allowing you to avoid impacted areas and or take appropriate action.
