Cardinal Red Alert

Otterbein University provides a free emergency alert/notification system, called Cardinal Red Alert, for the campus community that will send email, text messages and automated phone calls to the campus community in the event of an emergency or a cancellation of classes due to bad weather. By default, all Otterbein email addresses; campus office phone numbers; and all student, faculty, and staff cell phone numbers are entered into the Cardinal Red Alert emergency notification system.

Thus, all students, faculty and staff will receive Red Alert messages. No registration or sign-up is required.
