There is 1 comment on New BU Alert System Includes App for Quicker Communications during Emergencies

  1. Don’t you think it would be helpful to include the name of the App that BU is using in support of its BU Alert system, since it’s not listed anywhere on the “BU Alert” page on Emergency Management’s site?

    I had to go to [https://www.bu.edu/em/2022/09/09/5-things-you-need-to-know-about-bu-alert/] just to confirm that the app is being provided via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, under the name “Everbridge,” since it is not an exclusive BU App.
