Emergency Alerts

The safety of our students, faculty, employees, community members, and guests is a top priority. There are two ways to be notified of emergencies and we encourage people to sign up for both.

If an emergency happens on the Virginia Tech Carilion Health Sciences and Technology campus, the Carilion Clinic Police and Security Services Department will be the first to respond. The department uses the emergency notification system called Everbridge to communicate any situation that requires immediate action by those connected to the campus. All students, faculty, employees are highly encouraged to sign up through Everbridge. Family members, community members, and guests may also enroll. Please go to the VTC Everbridge page and create an account. You can set preferences on how you want to receive alerts.

Students, faculty, and employees are still strongly encouraged to sign up for VT Alerts as well, which is managed through the university.
